The Hamazkayin Parsegh Ganatchian Music School on June 2, 2019, organized a concert for its “Davigh” Instrumental Ensemble under the artistic direction of Megerdich Mikayelian. The venue was the Siran Manoukian Hall of the Yeghishe Manoukian College outside Beirut.
Tamar Snabian-Sourjian, director of the Hamazkayin schools of fine arts, welcomed the guests on behalf of the administration and trustees of the schools and on behalf of the music school. She noted that the ensemble is one of the more popular Hamazkayin groups and is seizing a place in community life with its active participation in important events like the Yerevan celebration of Hamazkayin’s ninetieth anniversary. She also mentioned the Homenetmen centennial event where Davigh received accolades for its participation. In the early days, Davigh included only guitar and violin. At present, the ensemble includes accordion, qanun, dhol, shvi, and other instruments. She has special words of praise for the ensemble’s artistic director and conductor, Megerdich Mikayelian, and his dedication to the group’s success.
