Ticket Prices: Pay What You Will -Tickets Required
Sounds of Armenia

Spotlight Member tickets available now.
Full price tickets available October 1, 10am.

The Naghash Ensemble combines the earthy spirituality of Armenian folk song, new classical music, contemporary post-minimalism and the energy of rock and jazz. Three brilliant female vocalists and some of Armenia’s finest instrumentalists on duduk, oud, dhol and piano play new music based on sacred texts by the medieval Armenian mystic poet and priest, Mkrtich Naghash.

Written by Armenian-American composer John Hodian, The Naghash Ensemble’s “Songs of Exile” is a profound meditation on man’s relationship to God from the perspective of a monk forced to live in exile for many years. Part folk music, part classical, this show is profoundly moving.

“East meets West and antiquity meets modernity in this collection of ruminations, lamentations and incantations. Highly intriguing yet accessible.”   — NPR

“Pay What You Will” is offered on select performances. Here’s how it works:

– You still need a ticket. Book your seats in advance by calling our box office at 458-8344 or visiting us at 686 Queen Street.

– At the performance, we will provide an envelope and ask audience members to pay whatever amount they wish (based on their own individual experience) following the performance.

You decide the price of your tickets!

The objective of “Pay What You Will” is to increase access to our programs, and to encourage our patrons to take a chance on new and exciting performances.

Max 6 tickets.
