LYNNFIELD, MA – Pianist Anahit Truzyan and harpist Carol McIntyre presented Spring Musical Interlude, a concert at the Lynnfield Community Church, on April 10. The concert, in an intimate setting, was an enjoyable and uplifting experience enjoyed by a local audience including many Armenians. Truzyan played two Armenian pieces. The first was a solo piece, Elegia, by Arno Babajanian, and the second was a duet by Stepan Nagdian called Song. Truzyan also performed Haydn’s Sonata and two impromptus by Schubert, as well as a Chopin Waltz and Fantasia-Impromptu. She had two other duets with McIntyre: Wild Rose of the Mountain, and I Vow to Thee.
Anahit Truzyan was Associate Professor of Piano Performance at the Komitas State Conservatory in Yerevan before moving to the US in 2000. She has performed in Armenia, Russ and the Middle East, and continues to perform publicly here in New England. She has an active teaching practice in the Boston area and also works as the Church Musician at Lynnfield Community Church.
Carol McIntyre plays traditional and contemporary music on her folk harp with a melodic and improvisational style inspired by her love of Celtic and classical music.
