This evening thousands of people poured into Liberty Square where the Opera House is located to hear an open-air concert performed by world-renown singer Andrea Bocelli. He was backed by the Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Marcello Rota and a "diva" quartet called Div4s. Both the Armenia State Chamber Choir and Hover Chamber Choir were also on stage. The event apparently coincided with Yerevan being passed the baton as the UNESCO World Book Capital for a year (yet another paradox, sorry couldn't resist), which started April 21. It was a marvelous concert.
In this high-tech video that I shot you can hear Bocelli's signature song, "Con te partirò," which was the second to last performance for the evening. Areg had a blast.
