New York, NY.- On Saturday, March 25, some 700 people gathered at New York’s St. Vartan Armenian Cathedral for a remarkable musical event in remembrance of the late journalist Hrant Dink on the 10th anniversary of his assassination. The occasion also marked the 90th anniversary of the Constantinople Armenian Relief Society (CARS), which organized the concert and its related events.



The evening began with a grand choral concert piece by composer Majak Toshigian and lyricist Bercuhi Berberyan. The "Hrant Dink Contemporary Oratorio" was performed under the direction of Kris D. Kalfayan, with soloists Karin Cubukcuyan Bozkurt, Elie Berberian, and Bogos Yegyazar.

Diocesan Primate Archbishop Khajag Barsamian presided and made remarks about the legacy of Hrant Dink. “It is incumbent upon us to recommit ourselves to continuing the mission of Hrant Dink,” Archbishop Barsamian said. “That mission is to create awareness in Turkish society about the Armenian Genocide, and to seek ways to bring about a peaceful reconciliation with Turkey.”

A dinner followed in Haik and Alice Kavookjian Auditorium to mark the CARS milestone. The organization’s president, Tamar Kayserian, was honored with a Pontifical encyclical of blessing from His Holiness Karekin II, the Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians.



The event was organized by the Constantinople Armenian Relief Society with the participation of 13 cultural, educational, and philanthropic organizations.
