PARIS (Armenpress) — Sorbonne University of Paris hosted the international seminar “Komitas: Crossroads of Classic and Modern,” on September 28. The event took place at Sorbonne’s Grand Salon, the very same hall where nearly a century ago Komitas himself had delivered a lecture.
The seminar is part of the Komitas International Festival which was launched in Yerevan, sponsored by the Culture Ministry. It began September 26, the birthday of Komitas, and will run through October 8.
The seminar was jointly organized by the Komitas Museum-Institute, the Embassy of France in Armenia and the Paris Academy. The academic discussions were followed by a concert of Voix de Stras.
