Arutyunian may be a newcomer to performing in New York City, but internationally he’s performed at the Louvre Auditorium in Paris, the Palazzo del Principe in Genoa, with the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra in the Czech Republic, and in Russia with the Kaliningrad Philharmonic and the Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra.
