The event was organized within the frames of the cooperation between YSU Cultural Centre and the Union of Composers of Armenia. This goes back to 2015 when student creative festival was organized on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the RA independence. It was called “The voice of the independence generation”.
During this concert our students performed works by prominent Armenian composers.
The concert was attended by the President of the Union of Composers of Armenia Aram Satyan, union members Stepan Shakaryan, Martin Vardazaryan, Yervand Yerznkyan, Stepan Babatorosyan, Edgar Gyanjumyan and Edmond Makaryan.
Director of the Centre Karine Davtyan wished the members of the union success and achievements in her congratulatory message: “Our center actively cooperates with composers, and I am sure that this cooperation will be continued.”
Founding member of the Armenian Musical Congress, the RA People’s Artist, Yerevan Honorary Citizen Martin Vardazaryan said: “It is important that the performers are not professionals, but students. Young people need to know the artists. I hope these initiatives will be continued.”
The event included performances by not only students of the Centre and YSU Choir, but also composers. An episode from the performance “Nazar the Brave” was presented, the premiere of which was in 2005. The main character was played that time by the Head of YSU Public Relations and Information Department, Director of YSU Publishing House Karen Grigoryan.
In the end of the event, Gold Medal Winner of the RA Ministry of Culture, Honored Art Figure of the RA, President of the Union of Composers of Armenia Aram Satyan thanked the Director of the Centre Karine Davtyan and YSU administration: “The universe gives power to the creative man; these voices come from there really.”
Karine Davtyan noted that the program “Cultural Education” will expand its scopes of cooperation, providing students with the possibility to learn more about the world of art and music.
