NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. — The mother-and-son team of Ani and Haig Hovsepian will perform at the 117th anniversary celebration of the Lowell ARF Committee Saturday, December 8, at 6 p.m. with a combined program at St. Gregory Armenian Church, 158 Main St.
The Hovsepians are both known for their musical virtuoso throughout the Greater Boston community. This will mark their first public appearance in North Andover where they have strong family ties.
Those attending last April’s Genocide commemoration at the Statehouse in Boston would have seen young Haig dazzle an unsuspecting
audience with his violin talent. His mom accompanies him on piano while dad Jirair takes care of the photography.
“We’re very proud of how far Haig has come on his instrument,” his parents agree. “He enjoys performing before crowds and looks to continue his music on a higher level.”
At 13, this young teen has already built up quite a resume. He’s an eighth-grader at Cherry Middle School in Belmont. He started his violin studies at age 4. In 2009, he received his first award at the Statewide Music Teachers Association competition.
