The Anthropology/Armenian Museum each year, on his birthday, honors the memory and music of genius Armenian/Greek American pianist-composer Mark Kyrkostas. Pianist, Ivy Adrian interprets Kyrkostas’ style of playing, as if his spirit is coming alive through her playing. The program will also feature singer Michelle Mallardi, lead actress in the original Broadway production of Beauty and they Beast. Cosmo Mallardi, Mark’s Jazz Quintetbass player will accompany the performers. Dancer Ani O’Hanlon will perform their famous “Hall Dance” and comedian Nick Whitmer returns by popular demand. The program will take place on Saturday March 9 at 7 PM. Preceding the program a full buffet dinner will be served. All this for $30 per person (2 for & $50). WOW! Seating is limited. Please reserve early by calling 718-428-5650.  
 
  Since the Anthropology/ Armenian Museum is functioning in such small quarters, there is no space to expand to include comprehensive histories of other ethnic groups, which was the mission of the organization, supported by noted Anthropologist Margaret Mead, back in 1977. There are references to Africa through our fossil collection, origins of pertinent languages,and dolls from over 125 nations, but our mission is to display exhibits representing the history and diversity of the people of NYC. We have contacted NYC Councilmen, wealthy doners and would even like to be part of the AMAZON educational complex slated for Long Island City. “All We need is a Little Help From Our Friends”.
