On May 15th, 2008, Vahé Aslanian, Founding Director of the Camerata Singers, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family. The Camerata Singers will always remember Vahé’s talent for unique programming, including his own editions of Renaissance and Baroque music as well as arrangements of California mission music of the 18th century.
