May 3 at 5:15pm

Considered one of the most significant Armenian singers of the early twentieth century, Zabelle Panosian has been largely neglected as an artist for more than half a century. In an effort to revive her voice, Ian Nagoski, record collector and producer, has released a new album of songs Panosian recorded in 1918-1919, and a book that traces her remarkable life. 
 
In this lecture, discover a performer with an exceptional and cultivated voice — who toured the world as a singer and made a significant contribution to the cultural lives of the Armenian diaspora, the elevation of Armenian art song, and the relief of survivors of the Armenian genocide.
