Erzurum March

Erzurum March was written for the city of Erzurum in eastern Turkey where Suni lived 1910-1914. This is an uplifting and lively composition which starts the 1971 concert. This song saved his life in 1914. (From the Armenian alphabet, Erzroom has also been transliterated thus: Erzurum, Erzuroom, Erzeroum, etc.). Garin or Karin is the Armenian name for the city of Erzroom.
