Zangér Boston Youth Chorale Seeks New Singers


WATERTOWN — The Zangér Boston Youth Chorale has just announced its rehearsal schedule for the 2023-2024 season. Chorus members are coming together after the summer vacation to begin preparations for Christmas Concerts, as well as additional programs and appearances to be announced shortly.

Zangér Chorale was founded in February 2023 by Armenian Culture Connection, under the direction of conductor Artur Veranian, an internationally acclaimed choral conductor and teacher. He trained and educated many singers and choir conductors, and had an enormous influence on a whole generation of musicians. The innovative vocal technique he implemented has been acknowledged and celebrated for its uniqueness; he is a recipient of many international awards and prizes at European competitions in Germany, Italy, Spain, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine and Armenia. To share and preserve Maestro’s legacy and his contribution to the choral art, a documentary film is being produced in Armenia and is scheduled to be released in December 2023.

With the newly formed Zangér Boston Youth Chorale, Veranian is bringing back a tradition of professional vocal art, much missed after the devastating pandemic years. Only a few months into rehearsals, the chorus was invited to perform at two major community events: on May 19 at ACEC on “Armenian Independence Day Celebration” organized by ARF, and on May 21 performed as a special guest at “Our Young Talents” Concert in Watertown. The latter was aired on the Watertown Cable TV.

Zangér is currently accepting new singers ages 6 to 17. No prior experience necessary.

Rehearsals are held on Thursdays, 6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m., at the Armenia Cultural and Educational Center in Watertown (47 Nichols Avenue).
