We are pleased to present this live stream concert with 2021 Chelmsford High School graduate Marietta Arakelian, her teacher, Tigran Dolukhanyan, and her mother, Arpineh Arakelian. It represents an eight year relationship between the Chelmsford Center for the Arts and the Arakelians. Mrs. Arakelian has been a champion of the CCA and of music education, holding her studio recitals at the CCA. Marietta’s graduation is a fitting time to recognize her long time study of violin with Mr. Dolukhanyan. We celebrate these three fine musicians and wish Marietta all the best as she begins college in the fall. Art matters.
