More than 500 pupils from music schools in Gyumri, Vanadzor, Ashtarak, Abovyan, Sevan, Artashat and Yerevan were invited to a Europe Day classical concert with the Armenian National Philharmonic Orchestra. When the children arrived to Aram Khachatryan Concert Hall in Yerevan on 4th June, they were greeted by Ambassador Świtalski with whom they could celebrate their common love for music at the concert. . Representatives of the Armenian government, EU member states’ Ambassadors and representatives from international organisations also attended the concert.
13310333_1035358556518073_7966482787202323642_nAmbassador Świtalski opened the concert by introducing the vision of the EU: ‘66 years ago a great politician, Robert Schuman, had a vision, a vision of peaceful, prosperous, free and just Europe. We celebrate this day to commemorate the man and his vision, and we want to celebrate it together with the Armenian people. The celebrations of Europe Day have now culminated in Yerevan this weekend after five concerts in the marzes. This year we celebrate Europe Day in Armenia under the slogan of “Europe for Youth”. I am happy to have children from all over Armenia with us today – tonight they are our guests of honour. This evening is special because young talented Armenians will play European music. Isn’t this a great match?’
Music school pupils Sofia Vardanyan (violin), Diana Adamyan (violin), and Harutyun Melikyan (piano) performed during the concert together with their elder counterparts and all three pupils also played solo pieces.
