The choir sings Der Voghormya, "Lord Have Mercy Upon Us", a hymn dedicated to Armenians and other Christians in Syria. The Reverend Father Vahan Gosdanian of Holy Trinity Armenian Apostolic Church in downtown Fresno said the service was dedicated to the Armenians being recently persecuted in Syria. Armenian-Americans across the valley were asked to pray for fellow Armenians that were reportedly being attacked and forced to flee their homes.
