JULY 2–6 2018

Dear artists and connoisseurs of the musical art


I am delighted to welcome the artists, guests, participants and audience of "Armenia" International Music Festival for the second time.

Though extremely young, "Armenia" International Music Festival has managed to reach international status and success thanks to its skilled organizational board and involvement of high esteemed artists. It has fostered the country Armenia  as another cultural hub for sharing fine classic music on the highest level. 

Prepare yourself to be challenged, excited and inspired by the performances of great artists, groups, rising stars and professional programs. 

Good luck to everyone and enjoy these 5 days at "Armenia" International Music Festival, 2nd edition.

Dear friends,

We are proud that the Second edition of “Armenia” International Music Festival is organized in collaboration with Armenian State Symphony Orchestra and takes place in the beautiful city of Yerevan.

Armenia is one of the well-known musical centers of the world and famous for its musicians, artists, and composers. We decided to host music concerts in Yerevan - the capital city of Armenia which will include the participation of the winner of the Malta International Piano Competition 2018 in the framework of the “Malta International Music Festival 2018”.

The significant mission of the European Foundation for Support of Culture through the presentation of “Armenia” International Music Festival is to discover, promote, support and document the great masters emerging in this generation; to rediscover unusual repertoire while providing the audience with a unique musical experience; to build the audiences of the future to help ensure the very existence of classical music.

With so many artistic achievements to its credit, the European Foundation for Support of Culture looks forward towards the continued success of its classical music projects in the future.

Dear guests, welcome to “Armenia” International Music Festival. I wish you good experience and fantastic memories.

With best regards and respect,
Mr. Konstantin Ishkhanov,
President of EFSC.
