BUDDING OPERA SINGER PERFORMS AT TEA

The Women’s Committee of the Glendale Symphony Orchestra Assn.

will have a tea for members and guests at 2 p.m. Sunday at the

Glendale home of one of its members.

Norman Henry Mamey, music director of the orchestra, will address

the group. Lily Gevorkian, the 18-year-old soprano who won the

committee’s Chipman Encouragement Award in the spring, will be

featured.

Born and raised in Burbank, Lily started singing at 3. She sang in

choirs and musical productions at John Muir Middle School and Burbank

High School, but did not start training for opera until three years

ago, when she started working with Ellada Chakoyan, whose studio is

in Glendale.

Upon graduation from Burbank High in June, Lily decided to take

this year off from formal studies to concentrate on the many skills

necessary for an operatic career: she is studying two languages,

piano and solfege and learning the role of Gilda in “Rigoletto.”
