The Association of Armenian Choirmasters, Gayane Baghdasaryan said, prioritizes the cooperation of Armenian choirs with foreign organizations. “The choir art introduces a new school through working with foreign structures. The seminar will include presentations and master classes and we invite anyone who is interested,” Baghdasaryan said.
Within the framework of the Sound of Europe II project a CD was released and disseminated in different countries.
Armenian culture’s beauty and development prospects for choir arts in the country stir interest worldwide, as well as at the Chórtownia Foundation, the speakers said. “We are interested in Armenia and its potential. It is an attractive country, especially for Polish people. This visit to Armenia is a chance to get to know your culture better, a culture which is one of the ancient ones,” Duma said.
Krzhizhanovska-Loboda described the tour in Armenia as the first step to get acquainted with Armenian choirmasters and added they have agreed upon future projects and initiatives with the Armenian side.
