On Saturday 16 March, the Armenian Community's Arax Choir performed at the Nubarian Armenian School in Heliopolis

On Saturday 16 March, the Armenian Community in Egypt gathered at the Nubarian Armenian School in Heliopolis to listen to the Arax Choir conducted by Mihran Ghazelian. The event commemorated the 110th anniversary of the Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian (1903-1978).

The concert by the Arax Choir included a few of the original choral works by Khachaturian based on folkloric songs, while other songs were based on Khachaturian's music, with lyrics written by Mihran Ghazelian, the choir's conductor and artistic director. The evening also included short dance numbers to Khachaturian's music and a documentary film about the composer.
