LOS ANGELES– The Vishup Ensemble will perform a much-anticipated concert at the Roslin Art Gallery (415 E. Broadway, Suite 100, Glendale) on the night of Saturday, July 23, the gallery announced.

Vishup was formed recently in Los Angeles by two acclaimed musicians: flutist, vocalist, and guitarist Arik Grigoryan of the acclaimed Bambir music collective; and vocalist and pianist Areni Agbabian. Other members of the ensemble include cellist Artyom Manukyan and drummer Vardan Duvendjian.

Featuring original compositions as well as fresh takes on classics, Vishup’s music consists of richly evocative journeys through Armenian history, myth, folklore, and lyric poetry. The ensemble’s sound is driven by the exquisite lead vocals of Areni Agbabian and the soothing, folk-inflected voice of Arik Grigoryan, woven with lush textures of cello, flute, guitar, and drums.

“The music of the Vishup Ensemble is wonderfully unique, and we’re very excited to present the band’s concert at the gallery,” said Arno Yeretsian of the Roslin Gallery.

The concert will start at 8 pm. Tickets may be reserved by calling Abril Bookstore at (818) 243-4112 or through itsmyseat.com/vishup. Space is limited.
