While most of us were watching the Olympics this summer, Armenians won gold at another international competition, The World Peace Choral Festival. The WPCF is a special event, bringing choirs of all ages together in musical education and performance. This year, top awards went to the Little Singers of Armenia. The founder of the choir Tigran Hekekyan received the Outstanding Conductor Award, and the Little Singers got the Gold Medal and the First Prize of Grand Prix, recognized as the best and absolute winner among the choirs that won the Grand Prix in different nominations. Little singers weren’t the only choirs from Armenia who won high recognition, The Geghard Vocal Ensemble, the Hover Chamber Choir, and the Arar choir also earned medals. The aim of the festival is to provide the participants the opportunity to learn from world-class musicians. They are able to develop their own talents while broadening their cultural understanding through exchange with choirs of many other nations.
