Soundtracks of old and popular movies and tea for guests, using traditional dishes of old times - this was the atmosphere. The event was organized by YSU Cultural Center in honor of the 100th anniversary of YSU.
The idea of the retro concert belonged to YSU Rector Aram Simonyan. It was directed by the Director of the Cultural Center Karine Davtyan. YSU Rector, Vice-rector on Students, Alumni and Public Relations Ruben Markosyan, YSU Publishing House Director Karen Grigoryan, Secretary of YSU Board of Trustees Mikayel Malkhasyan, faculty members and students were present.
Prior to the concert, YSU Vice-rector Ruben Markosyan and Karine Davtyan awarded diplomas Nare Baghdasaryan, 4th year student of the Faculty of Economics and Management, who had high marks in the "IQ" competition organized jointly by YSU Cultural Center and "Focus" team on November 15. Tigran Tumanyan, 1st year Master student of the Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics, and Vahe Movsisyan, 3rd year student at the Faculty of Biology also received awards.
During the concert, members of the Cultural Center performed songs of Soviet favorite films of the 1950-1970s, accompanied by dance and theatrical performances.
After the concert, YSU Vice-Rector made a suggestion to organize another concert, dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Armenian-Russian diplomatic relations and to invite the RF ambassador, as well as other representatives.
Director of YSU Cultural Center Karine Davtyan also promised that the concert program will have its logical continuation: "We will present not only favorite songs of Soviet films shot since the 1970s, but also have a separate touch upon the songs of Soviet Armenian films."
