The Faculty of Culture of the Armenian State Pedagogical University (ASPU) hosted a concert devoted to the capital Yerevan.
The aim of the event organized by the Chair of Music was to present and talk about the city that is rich in beautiful traditions once again and to do this through music.
This time the concert gathered students from the Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree programs who gave versatile and beautiful performances.
The event kicked off with a performance by “Zvartnots” Kanun Players Ensemble, followed by instrumental performances of famous and beloved songs, including “Lalani”, “Broyi, broyi”, “Nocturne”, “Vokaliz”, “Festive Prelude”, “Impromptu”, “Moonlit night”, etc.
As the event organizers noted, Yerevan has always been a cultural city and has had brass, pop and folk instruments orchestras, and today, the ASPU Chair of Music is continuing that tradition.
Established by the Chair of Music and winner of an international competition, the “Luse” Ensemble, which is under the direction of alumnus of the ASPU Azat Aslanyan, serves as brilliant evidence of this.
The concert ended with performances of “Improvisation” and “Ode to Oshakan” by “Luse” Ensemble.
The audience was in for a surprise since the day also marked the premiere of the music video for the song “Yerevan” written by Head of the Chair of Music Ara Gevorgyan. As Gevorgyan stated, this was the ninth homonymous song devoted to Yerevan. As a matter of fact, Ani Gevorgyan, who is the director of the music video, is also an alumnus of the Armenian State Pedagogical University.
