Hamazkayin Art Schools Principal Hagop Hantian delivered an opening speech saying that 35 years before the Hamazkayin founded Levon Shant Cultural Center and the Parsegh Ganachian Music School. A great number of Armenian and foreign students graduated and still study there. Some of those students have already given concerts on the world’s best concert halls. He said that in parallel with this center, there is also another center operating in the Aghpalian-Homenetmen Sport and Cultural Complex and also the Music College operating under the patronage of the Armenian State Conservatory after Komitas according to a special agreement, pursuant to which the graduate students are enrolled in the Conservatory in Armenia as second-year university students. "If we want to have a stronger company, we should have good musicians and music lovers. Music is fantastically beautiful when it is performed solo, but it is also beautiful performed by an orchestra, when different sounds of different instruments get together creating a different world, where feelings are incomparable and inexplicable," concluded Hantian.
