Lark Musical Society To Bestow St. Nerces Shnorhali Medal of Honor
To Joe and Joyce Stein

Glendale, September 30, 2015 – The Lark Musical Society will honor philanthropists Joe and Joyce Stein at the Society’s annual fundraiser for their generous contributions to the Society throughout the years. The event will again be hosted by Lark’s Honorary Chairman and LA’s dean of public relations Carl Terzian. The fundraiser will be held at the Jonathan Club in downtown Los Angeles, on November 1, 2015.

“We are delighted to honor Joe and Joyce Stein,” said Lark Chairman of the Board Andy Torosyan. “They are true humanitarians, having raised millions of dollars for scholarships for Armenian students and for supporting the arts and music.”

Joyce Philibosian Stein is an ex-officio member of the Armenian Missionary Association of America (AMAA) Board of Directors, trustee of the Stephen Philibosian Foundation, and Life Trustee and ex-officio member of the Board of Trustees for Haigazian University. Joe Stein represents AMAA in the United Armenian Fund and is involved in numerous other Armenian organizations and projects. The couple reside in Indian Wells and continue to actively support and volunteer for their beloved Armenian causes and organizations.

The fundraiser will raise money to fulfill Lark’s mission of converting one of its 4,000 sq. ft. buildings into the Lark Community Museum where Armenian culture, rich history, heritage, and the arts will be celebrated. The museum will also exhibit original Armenian historical documents, treasures and themed lectures that go back hundreds of years.

Lark Musical Society is a nonprofit organization based in Glendale. Lark has actively served the community since 1994 by delivering the highest quality education in classical music to thousands of children, bringing to life hundreds of world class performances, and commissioning dozens of world premiere musical works based on Armenian themes. Lark is one of the most active organizations in the Diaspora working to preserve and enrich the Armenian culture.

To commemorate the centennial of the Armenian Genocide, Lark embarked on a journey to bring 100 events to the community, demonstrating the rebirth of a nation that survived Genocide. Events included Ian Krouse’s Armenian Requiem, Serj Tankian’s 100 Years Symphony, Tigran Mansourian’s Requiem, and four nights of beloved Anoush Opera.

Lark’s goal is to make Glendale a destination for all lovers of Armenian culture by bringing to life a cultural museum in the heart of the Armenian Diaspora in Glendale. It will also be a place for non-Armenian neighbors to learn more about Armenian culture, traditions and the arts. For more information please contact Lark Musical Society at 818-500-9997
