On April 21, 2015, the French-Armenian conductor Alain Altinoglu led the Armenian World Orchestra (AWO) in a memorial concert to mark the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. The evening celebrated Armenian heritage and honored the Genocide's victims with a moving program of traditional Armenian and Western classical music that included a world premiere by French-Armenian composer Michel Petrossian.
