According to the website, Montreal mayor Gérald Tremblay paid a visit to Armenia in Oct. 2010, during which time a bilateral agreement was signed with former Yerevan mayor Gagik Beglaryan to make Montreal and Yerevan sister cities. The agreement was set up to facilitate tourism, as well as technical and economic cooperation between the two cities. Furthermore, when Mr. Tremblay returned to Montreal, he declared October the month of Armenia.
Notable artists participating in the Oct. 1 concert include former Eurovision contestants representing Armenia Eva Rivas and the sister-duo Inga and Anush. Québécois artists will be represented by Daniel Lavois, Isabelle Boulay, Dan Bigras and Marie Élaine Thibert.
The concert will also feature Armenian artists Alla Levonyan, Arthur Hakobyan, Narine Dovlatyan and Emma Asatryan, as well as the 20 musicians comprising the Armenian Jazz Band.
The event is set to take place at Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier at Place des Arts. Tickets can be reserved online.
