Zulal at the Getty Sept. 24

The J. Paul Getty Museum presents Zulal, the latest in its series of Gordon Getty Concerts on September 24. The Armenian word zulal means "clear water." Fittingly, this concept has been adopted by an enchanting a capella trio dedicated to creating music reflective of its namesake: fluid, clean, and unconfined. The group weaves intricate arrangements that pay tribute to the rural roots of the music while introducing a sophisticated lyricism and energy.



To complement the exhibition "In the Beginning Was the Word": Medieval Gospel Illumination, Teni Apelian, Yeraz Markarian, and Ana├»s Tekerian present a sublime evening of music drawn from Armenia's expansive reservoir of folk, traditional, and church music. The trio has performed in such esteemed venues as Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, New York’s Symphony Space, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Museum of the City of New York, the Alex Theatre, and the Longy School of Music along with performances for Cirque du Soleil, the Near East Foundation and the Silk Road Project.



Zulal performs Saturday, September 24, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. at the Harold M. Williams Auditorium, Getty Center.
