BJU Presents Panosian and the Providence of His Story
October 10 @ 7:30 pm$19
Bob Jones University will present Panosian and the Providence of His Story Thursday, Oct. 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Founder’s Memorial Amphitorium.
The multifaceted program combines the personal story of longtime BJU history professor Dr. Edward Panosian, whose family was forced to flee the Armenian Genocide (1915-1920), with the vocal artistry of Mariam Matossian, a local singer-songwriter with Armenian roots. Matossian will be accompanied by a small band of musicians playing traditional Armenian instruments and the BJU Symphony Orchestra.
The recent publication of the biography Panosian: A Story of God’s Gracious Providence by BJU graduate Chris Anderson was the impetus for the idea of a fine arts event designed to honor Dr. Panosian and share the lessons of the Armenian Genocide with a new generation. The book traces Dr. Panosian’s parent’s harrowing journey to America. In 1948, Panosian arrived at BJU as a freshman. He later joined the faculty and retired from teaching in 2004.
Ticket prices are $19 for adults. Tickets are available at Programs and Productions Monday-Friday, 12-5 p.m. or by calling (864) 770-1372.
