The life of prominent Soviet-era composer Aram Khachaturian is the subject of an award-winning documentary by filmmaker Peter Rosen. You've probably heard noted 20th century composer Khachaturian's "Sabre Dance' on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Simpsons or perhaps on The Ed Sullivan Show, even if you don't know the composer by name. We will be screening Khachaturian followed by a Q&A session with Rosen in the Bossone Auditorium on Wednesday, November 19th at 7 PM.

Peter Rosen has produced 36 films on the arts. His subjects have included Van Cliburn, Garrison Keillor, Enrico Caruso, Artur Rubinstein, Leonard Bernstein, I.M. Pei and Toscanini. In addition to screening his film, Rosen will work with students in our Music, Art & Art History and Film & Video programs as well as the Pennoni Honors College during a two-day residency.
