Founded by musician and educator Tsovinar Hovhannisyan, the Al. Spendiaryan Qanon Ensemble was created to encourage Armenian girls and young women to take up an instrument traditionally played by men. The Ensemble has produced virtuosic musicians, sparking a “gender revolution” in their wake and bringing fresh energy to concert stages around the world.

Presented in collaboration with the 2018 Smithsonian Folklife Festival.
