Educated at the Royal Conservatory of Madrid and the École Normale de Musique Alfred Cortot in Paris, Melikyan has gained international attention while performing in such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall in New York, Jordan Hall in Boston, Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona, and Salle Cortot in Paris. Mundoclasico has hailed the Armenian-born pianist as an artist with a unique voice combining “high-wire virtuosity” with “deep musical intuition and the ability to connect with the audience.”

Tickets are $25 general, $18 senior and $5 for students. Parking is free after 4 p.m. on Fridays with no permit necessary in lot P1.

Co-sponsored by the Armenian Studies Program, the Young Armenian Talent Series is part of the Philip Lorenz International Keyboard Concerts

NOTE: This was originally scheduled to be a concert by Hayk Melikyan, no relation, who was unable to make the concert.
