Study Tour to Armenia
20 Sep 2024 – 26 Sep 2024, Yerevan
Discover two choral traditions at the crossroads of Europe and Asia.
Join us and discover the wonderful heritage of countries that are somewhat remote and therefore all the more remarkable in their heritage of choral traditions. Through exchanges with choirs, composers, workshops and concerts, you will enrich your knowledge, your repertoire
and your personal treasury of experiences. We have designed the study tour as a modular system where you can choose between three possibilities and either visit one or both countries.
Armenian choral art has old traditions for centuries. Group singing was widely spread among Armenians even in the Hellenistic period, and already after the adoption of Christianity, choral art found its best expression in spiritual and secular music. Until the 19th century, Armenian choral art was monodia. Already in the second half of 19th century Armenian composers included polyphonic singing, creating a harmonious combination of European and Eastern traditions based on Armenian scales.
Nowadays, Armenian culture has multi-format options to offer choral music lovers and professionals. In our country, with rich cultural heritage, there are about 37 state and hundreds of other choirs: spiritual, folk, student, children’s, men’s, women’s and chamber choir of disabled people. We would be delighted to welcome you to Armenia and to discover choral art in our own way, united with the national roots of Armenian culture.
