New Show on KPTZ: Exploring Music hosted by Tigran Arakelyan

KPTZ is pleased to present a new weekly music program called Exploring Music, hosted by Tigran Arakelyan, Artistic Director and Conductor of the Port Townsend Symphony. The show debuts on Sunday August 16, from 3-4pm and will air every Sunday thereafter at the same time. Tigran will be sharing music that has inspired him throughout the years, and also playing new discoveries, in all genres. 

“I am thrilled to join the KPTZ family as a host. I have been a guest numerous times since April of 2017 and love listening to KPTZ’s diverse programming. I want to thank Phil Andrus for his support and encouragement during the past few years. Although my passion and work are in classical music, I enjoy a wide variety of genres. Growing up in post-Soviet Armenia and Los Angeles, I was exposed to genres ranging from folk, jazz and pop to rock, classical, hip-hop and more. On this show I will share music that has inspired me throughout the years but will also challenge myself to discover new works in all genres to share with all of you. There will be occasional guests from the vibrant Port Townsend arts scene or artists who are visiting to perform.”  ~ Tigran Arakelyan, DJ Host of Exploring Music
