ACOM's annual Voski Ashoun Celebration was held this year at the Pine Tree Apple Orchard in White Bear Lake.

The day was a perfect autumn day for an excursion and picnic at an apple orchard. About 30 people attended and shared food, stories, a trivia game and wandering around the orchard and visiting the gift and bake shop. Peter Hajinian formulated an Armenian trivia quiz that most of the attendees perticipated in. There seemed to be no clear winner, even after a number of run-off questions all correctly answered by the 5 finalists. Peter finally announced that the first prize would go to "Poly" for a question that Poly asked of the trivia master that he couldn't answer. Everyone in attendence enjoyed the outing.

The masterpiece written by Komitas, with a different and unique interpretation here introducing the "mesenko", a traditional Ethiopian instrument, in the mix resulting in some mix of cultures, a true "mixology" of my Ethiopian Armenian-ness.
Thanks Kenny Allen, Endris Hassen, (we regret the spelling error in the video editing) and of course the great Komitas!
