THE AYF OLYMPICS ALL-STARS FEATURING ONNIK DINKJIAN

The weekend would not be complete without the fan favorites… the seamless sounds of our legendary AYF Olympics All-Star Band featuring Onnik Dinkjian. They will surely end the weekend with style!

We cannot fathom an Olympic dance without this great group of multi-generational family men who have brought tradition to life. They are musicians who we know and love through every Olympics weekend, as they have told the stories through songs of women, men, love, strength, hope and the Armenian spirit. Onnik, Michael, John and the crew are going to ignite the stage as always, but most of all they are leading by example to keep our Armenian music alive.

  • The inimitable voice of Onnik Dinkjian
  • Legendary oud master John Berberian
  • The ever popular voice of Michael Gostanian
  • Multi-talented Mal Barsamian on clarinet
  • The fabulous sound of Steve Vosbikian, Jr. on sax
  • Famed composer/instrumentalist Ara Dinkjian on keyboard
  • Jason Naroian and Ron Tutunjian on dumbeg providing the
    powerful rhythms

Midway in the evening, the awards ceremony will recognize athletes and teams for their achievements. The winning AYF chapter will be announced and presented the coveted Olympic Cup trophy, followed by the fun and fraternal spirit of the AYF chapter dances.

Don’t miss out on your chance to see Onnik, John, and the AYF All-Stars! Save money and buy your all-inclusive Hye Pass here.
