Sergey Khachatryan

Weekend of April 19, 2014

Sergey Khachatryan

Sergey Khachatryan is a 28-year-old violinist who says he has two lives: his love for cars, and his love for music. On this weekend's Performance Today we'll focus on his musical life, and we'll hear him play Sibelius' dramatic violin concerto in concert in Sydney, Australia.
