Kariné Poghosyan
CSUN Alumni Concert
Great Hall (Directions & Parking)
** This is a past performance, this event was on Wed., March 8 **

Armenian-American pianist and CSUN alumna Kariné Poghosyan has been described as an “extraordinary” and “larger than life” musician, whose playing “goes to the heart of the music.” Following a successful performance at Carnegie Hall, she returns to her alma mater with a program rich with music from Armenia’s best-known composer, Aram Khachaturian, including two excerpts from his ballet works and his rarely performed Piano Sonata. Sergei Rachmaninoff’s 150th birthday celebration continues with the 1931 re-written version of his Piano Sonata No. 2 played with the audience seated on-stage, just feet away from the piano.

This performance was generously underwritten by Mr. Milton G. Valera '68 & Mrs. Debbie M. Valera
