Toros Siranossian was born in Beirut in 1936. As a young man, he spent three years at the Ecole Hoteliere in Dekwaneh, Beirut and after that he traveled to Switzerland to continue his studies at the Ecole Hoteliere de Glion.
After completing his studies, he inaugurated his night club called “EPI CLUB” in Phoenicia street Beirut. The club operated between 1961 and 1976, then had to be closed down because of the Lebanese war outbreak.
Toros Siranossian brought to EPI club a variety of performers from all over the world, some of whom gained their world-wide fame due to their exposure at the EPI club, such as Adamo and Enrico Macias to name a few.
Between 1970 and 1971, Toros Siranossian initiated Deir el Kalaa festival with the world renowned French singer Charles Aznavour and initiated the International Festival of Byblos with the international singer Gilbert Bécaud, who also performed in many other shows in Tripoli, Beirut, Jbeil, Zahle and in other locations around the country.
To all those festivals, Toros Siranossian frequently introduced many artists to Lebanon, such as Charles Aznavour, Julio Iglesias, Dalida, Gilbert Bécaud, Demis Roussos, Joe Dassin, Ray Charles, Shirley Bassey, Samantha Fox, Johnny Hallyday, Mireille Mathieu, Boney M, Mikis Theodorakis, Leo Ferre, Jean Ferre, Gloria Gaynor, Georges Moustaki and many other renowned singers, performers and international band ensembles.
In 1981, while the Lebanese war continued indefinitely, Toros Siranossian moved all his artistic activities outside Lebanon where he established the festival of Aleppo castle in Syria, produced and organized musical festive galas and ceremonies in Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, and Egypt. The artists included world famous vocalists and especially famous Lebanese singers such as; Fayrouz, Sabah, Majida El Roumi, Wadih El Safi, Samira Toufic and other great artists.
With his accumulated experience in show business and entertainment production Toros Siranossian founded La Maison de L’Artiste agency in 1987, in Antelias, Beirut, which was inaugurated under the patronage of the president of the Republic of Lebanon at the time, Mr. Amine Gemayel. Since the opening of the “Home of the Artist” agency, all artists from Southwest Asia and North Africa have been promoted to the international arena of prestigious gala performances and events all over the world. The agency currently operates between Lebanon and the U.A.E, with artists mainly performing in the GCC region.
