Their style is not standard, it includes typical heavy metal, hard rock, and Armenian folk elements and typical rhythms. The songs` texts have strong social and political orientation, sometimes affecting religion while some of them are dedicated to Armenia. The band has a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance. In the interpretation of the AGBU SOFIA CHAMBER ORCHESTRA and the soloist Sergei Vardevaryan, the songs of System of a Down and Serge Tankian were convincing- ly presented, with all the characteristic features of this music style. The young vocalist Sergey Varde- varyan, who is a guest of the orchestra for a second time, made great impression with his strong vocal and emotional presence and 100% distribution on the scene. At the end of the concert, a short video address was broadcasted by Serge Tankian himself and he expressed his gratitude for the realization of this interesting musical project.
Last, but not least, let me remind you that every concert of the AGBU SOFIA CHAMBER ORCHES- TRA until the end of the year continues to support the noble cause of empathy for the Armenians affected by the military conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.
