WATCH: Councilman Krekorian Remembers Aram Gharabekian

LOS ANGELES—Los Angeles City Councilman Paul Krekorian adjourned last week’s session of the LA City Council by paying tribute to Maestor Aram Gharabekian, who passed away earlier this month.

Funeral services for Gharabekian were held Wednesday in Yerevan under the auspices of a state committee assembled by President Serzh Sarkisian, who along with First Lady Rita Sarkisian attended the event. He was buried the same day at the Yerevan Municipal Cemetery.

A memorial service and requiem Mass was held in Glendale on January 19, with Gharabekian’s colleague Maestro Tigran Mansurian eulogizing the late conductor.
