During the event, Ms. Neshanian received numerous honors and gifts for her vast and invaluable contribution to the world of music.  H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, honored Ms. Neshanian by presenting her with the Prelacy “St. Ashkhen the Queen” medal and letter of blessing, which was read by Rev. Fr. Razmig Khatchadourian.  The Prelate highly commended Ms. Neshanian and wished her long and healthy years so that she may continue to touch the hearts of the Armenian people with her legendary voice.

Anna Neshanian became the second woman to receive the medal, the first being awarded to Prelacy Chapel benefactress Mrs. Ashkhen Pilavjian.  The medal is bestowed to women who have made vast contributions to the Armenian church and nation.  The “St. Dertad the King” medal is awarded to men for similar contributions.
