Founded in 2010 and dedicated to one legendary Armenian composer each year, the Armenian Composing Art Festival was fueled by Sergey Smbatyan’s calling to uphold the traditions of Armenian classical composing school with the remembrance of the musical legacy of great Armenian composers.
The Khachaturian International Festival is one of the very few widely celebrated classical music festivals in the region, with its reputation and geography of participants increasingly extending well beyond Armenia.
The “Armenia” International Music Festival was established in 2017 at the initiative of Sergey Smbatyan, the Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra and Konstantin Ishkhanov, the President of the European Foundation for Support of Culture.
