Aga Zaryan - "To Touch Culture" in concert

To Touch Culture is an all-year-round series of events bringing people together regardless of their disability (or lack thereof), worldview, age or origin. We meet around what is impressive and most beautiful: science and art that bring generations together.

Throughout the academic year, diverse lectures, presentations and workshops are offered. Everyone is invited yet the important thing is that they are adapted to the needs of persons with disabilities. At the close of each edition of To Touch Culture, always in June, a concert is played in the courtyard of the Collegium Maius Jagiellonian University Museum, where we gather in order to listen to great music, usually jazz. On 23 June 2017, it was Aga Zaryan who performed for us a set selected specially for the occasion. It was her concert for To Touch Culture.
