70th Sacramento Armenian Food Festival
Sacramento’s longest running food festival celebrates 70 years of sharing Armenian food and culture on October 21, 2017. In an era of fast food, the Armenian Food Festival is the one time of the year Sacramentans can sample fresh, authentic Armenian cuisine. Sacramento Armenian-Americans begin this month preparing hard-to-replicate, from-scratch dishes from recipes handed down from generation to generation, holding on to a history that was nearly extinguished a century ago. Enjoy traditional favorites like shish kabob, lamb shanks, yalanchi (grape leaves), rice pilaf and tasty desserts. Nearly 100 years ago, Sacramento became home to Armenians fleeing genocide and today boasts 25,000 Armenian residents. With them come stories of family, cultural pride and tragedy.

Armenian State Chamber Choir
Thirty-five voices strong, the Armenian State Chamber Choir sings repertoire from the choral canon by Gabrielli, Bach, Brahms, and Schnittke, as well as contemporary works by Armenian composers that address the turbulent and often tragic history of the Armenian people.

The choir has recorded folk songs by the martyred priest and ethnomusicologist Komitas; and its recording on ECM of Tigran Mansurian's Ars Poetica was praised for its superb ensemble cohesion and blend: "gorgeous, emotive, and very deeply felt a cappella choral music...fully the product of inspiration" (All Music Guide).
