Following our great fathers

 Following our great fathersDue to tradition, on the New Year’s eve, upon invitation of the Fund for Cultural Education Support in the Chamber Music Hall after Komitas have gathered famous art figures of Armenia.

 

Among the guests were also the chairman of the National Assembly Hovik Abrahamyan, Minister of Culture of Armenia Hasmik Poghosyan, representatives from Ministry of Culture, cultural institutions, music schools and schools of arts of Yerevan and other regions and all regional coordinators of the Fund for Cultural Education Support as well.

It is no coincidence that the New Year's event carried the title "Following our great fathers". This time, the great maîtres found themselves among audience and the concert program was provided by young musicians-performers. Festive concert was preceded by an exhibition of works of young artists - students of basic art schools of Armenia.

The concert program consisted from musical greetings by one participant from each region. Young singers stepped on the stage in New Year's apparel: with Santa's hats and garlands wrapped around their necks. One by one, they presented their skills on different musical instruments and worthily withstood this unusual "musical exam" because some of them appeared on stage in Yerevan for the first time.

The participants were warmly welcomed by the audience. Final number was a real New Year present for everyone. Modular choir, chamber ensemble, ensemble of national instruments and jazz band headed by Davit Geodakyan of Yerevan’s music school after A.Spendiaryan performed a "New Year’s Medley".
