TENAFLY, N.J. — The Tekeyan Cultural Association’s Mher Megerdchian Theater Group held its annual holiday gala, featuring singer Elie Berberian, on Saturday, December 9, at St. Thomas Armenian Church.
Celebrating a successful year, the group welcomed more than 250 people who attended the yearly concert and fundraiser that benefits the theater group’s productions.
“Elie Berberian proved himself to be one of the best singers in the Diaspora,” said Harout Chatmajian, director and chairman of the Mher Megerdichian Theater Group. “He has a big repertoire and created a very good atmosphere by putting his all into his performances.”
The group’s accomplishments over the past year included a well-received performance of the Genocide-themed “All Rise” (Tadaran Vodkee) for the Detroit Armenian community. A nationalistic play that can be performed for all Diasporan communities, the theater group plans to continue staging “All Rise” around the world.
