Beirut, 23 November, 2018: BBAC supported, as main sponsor, the tribute to Charles Aznavour, the legendary French-Armenian singer. Entitled “Pour Toi Aznavour”, the tribute concert, directed and executed by Maestro Harout Fazlian, was held under the patronage of H.E. General Michel Aoun, President of the Lebanese Republic, in the presence of the First Lady of Lebanon Mrs. Nadia Aoun, Chairman of BBAC Mr. Ghassan Assaf and his spouse, key political, religious and public figures, in addition to many guests.
This musical and cultural concert, which was organized by the Lebanese National Higher Conservatory of Music and the Hamazkayin Armenian Educational and Cultural Society, took place at the Saint Joseph Church in Achrafieh and witnessed a huge success with the performance of the incredibly talented Lebanese Philharmonic Orchestra led by Maestro Fazlian.
On the occasion, Mr. Assaf paid homage in his speech to the multi-talented artist and great person Charles Aznavour while drawing a parallel between his lifelong strive for success to become a global legend, and the success of the Lebanese Armenian community that has enriched Lebanon with its skills and talents, significantly contributing to the Lebanese economy to become a main foundation in the country.
The tribute concert spanned two nights and saw hundreds of admirers of the late artist gather from all corners of Lebanon to bid him a last farewell.
