ARNI GUIRAGOSSIAN: “AGBU’S MUSICAL ARMENIA PROGRAM WAS A TURNING POINT IN MY LIFE”

The summer of 2012 marked an important turning point in Arni Guiragossian's life. Her participation in the Musical Armenia Program, organized by AGBU, opened new horizons for the flutist from the High Institute of Music in Damascus, Syria. Arni had very high expectations of the Musical Armenia Program. However, the reality far exceeded them. Experiencing the beauty of her homeland, the rich lessons and lectures, unique concerts and the warm and encouraging environment created by the teachers and organizers, helped Arni reach an important life-altering decision: she decided to move to Armenia. Today, Arni is a third year flute student at the Yerevan Komitas State Conservatory, an active member at the State Youth Orchestra of Armenia and a first place winner at this year’s 5th International Gyumri Renaissance Music Festival. On June 6, she performed with the Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra in Sabre Dance on the Street, an event sponsored by AGBU, organized by Emporium and which took place at the Cascade Complex and Cafesjian Sculpture Garden. The event celebrated renowned Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian's 110th birthday. Arni loves to share her experience with young Armenian musicians all over the world, and encourages them to take advantage of and participate in the amazing and unforgettable AGBU Musical Armenia Program, in their beautiful homeland.
