Armenian-American composer, conductor and pianist John Hodian brings his innovative ensemble "Epiphany 3" to Roslin Art Gallery in Glendale for a concert on May 4 at 8:00 pm. The trio has lived and performed Europe and Armenia for the past 8 years and this is a rare opportunity to hear them in America.


From ancient monasteries in Armenia to music festivals around the world, Bet Williams and John Hodian have been creating and performing music together for over 15 years. Described as, "a unique hybrid of world music, art song, Armenian spiritual music and avant-garde folk; utterly uncategorizable but transcendentally beautiful," by the Washington Post, their music is a blend of ancient and modern cultures and musical styles, with earthy, trance-like rhythms and at times chant-like melodies.


"Composer John Hodian plays evocative melodies and intricate rhythms on the piano that reflect his Armenian roots, his classical training and a love of improvisation. Bet Williams sings, breathes, shouts, whispers and cries with her 4- octave-range voice. On percussion, their 13-year-old son Jack Hodian possesses a keen sense of rhythm unparalleled by most adult drummers."
- Hamburg Abendblatt


Songs of Exile
The trio will also be performing excerpts from Hodian's magnum opus "Songs of Exile". Originally written for The Naghash Ensemble, this music combines the earthy spirituality of Armenian folk song, new classical music, contemporary post-minimalism and the energy of rock and jazz. The songs are a profound meditation on man's relationship to God from the perspective of a 15th century Armenian monk forced to live in exile for many years


"Part folk music, part classical and profoundly moving"
