The Columbus French Language Meetup Group Message Board › L'Invitation au Voyage- Around the World in a (French) musical soiree!
I would like to invite you to a recital pianist Ed Bak and I will be giving within the context of my Doctoral studies at The Ohio State University.
Presenting the French song as it traverses time, space, and vocal genres (Chanson, mélodie, opérette, opera...), this program takes us across the world in a whirlwind of intense emotions.
On Saturday February 12th at 7pm, Weigel Auditorium, 1866 College Rd N, Columbus OH. Free entrance. French gourmandises might follow in a small reception.
Invite your Valentine, make it a solo Valentine, or just come, enjoy, and feel French for ze evening!
Please feel free (and indeed, I would be most indebted if you would!) pass this along to any person or group you feel might be interested. There is my bio here below, and I can send you good quality posters if requested or an e-mail attachment of the poster image if so desired. (hint: it's my profile photo)
Merci & à bientôt!
Soprano, voice teacher
A francophone native of Lebanon who sang "L'homme à la moto" and "Non, rien de rien" of la Môme Piaf from her earliest memories, Sarah Khatcherian has spent more than a quarter century as a resident of many regions (Beirut, Cyprus, Paris, the Côte d'Azur, Brittany, Normandy, London, Princeton, New York, San Francisco, Hannover, Berlin, Columbus...) This recital is a personal expression of her wanderings thus far.
Currently pursuing a DMA in Voice Performance at The Ohio State University, Sarah Khatcherian received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Voice Performance from Westminster Choir College (Rider University), where she studied under the renown French Mélodie specialist Dalton Baldwin, Dr. Martin Néron, and Dr. JJ Penna, while cultivating an affinity for languages, poetry, and the art of recital.
A soprano, Khatcherian’s broad repertoire ranges from new works to lost masterpieces, which she has performed in recitals noted for their imaginative staging and selections. She has performed as soloist with the Trenton Symphony Orchestra in Beethoven's Fantaisie and with the Westminster Symphonic Choir in Rossini’s Messe Solennelle. Her international appearances include recitals throughout France and Germany. Choral performances include appearances with the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Westminster Opera Theatre and Symphonic Choir, the NJ Opera Festival, and the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra.
In addition to her work as a teacher, Khatcherian has also served as a guest speaker and singer for various fundraising and cultural events. She specially enjoys performing for cultural venues, linking her programming to temporary exhibits, lectures, or other events. Her most current recital engagements involved elements of French chanson and German cabaret, along with songs of her favorite dance, the tango. She has been recognized with numerous awards for performance and teaching, most recently the 2008 Young Leader Award from the National Association of Teachers of Singing. Khatcherian spent 2008-2009 as a Fulbright scholar in Hannover, Germany, where she performed in recitals, earned a Diplom in Lied studies ('10) as a student of Herr Jan-Philip Schulze from the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover (HMTMH), and conducted vocal pedagogy research.
