Saturday, April 9, the highly anticipated Taline and Friends concert took place at St. John Armenian Church. Based in Glendale, California, Taline is an Armenian children’s music singer whose bright and cheerful songs and dances bring joy to Armenian children and teach them the Armenian alphabet and the importance of keeping the Armenian language and heritage.
Originally one show was scheduled, but due to popular demand the committee decided to add a second show the same day, so every Armenian family with children had the opportunity to attend this unprecedented event.
More than 350 attended the concerts. The Paul Family Hall was transformed into a children-friendly environment, decorated with balloons. Children with their parents, grandparents and relatives were anxious to dance and sing with Taline and friends. Both performances were outstanding and created great enthusiasm.
The concert concession was organized by Arevik Makasdjian, and the proceeds were donated to Children of Kharabagh. Also, the proceeds from the event were donated to our brothers and sisters in Artsakh.
Fr. Mesrop thanked Taline and everyone for coming and supporting the events. He also thanked the committee members, Arevik Makasdjian, Valina Agbabian and Emma Abramyan who worked diligently to make this event possible.
