A great initiative from AAF board member Nareg Kazarian who is visiting Armenia these days. Our 'Armenian Children's Choir - Vayots Dzor' and the wonderful Youth Theatre Troupe of Yegheknadzor (for which the AAF provides funding thanks to a donation from an anonymous Iranian donor) were treated to a full cultural immersion in the capital Yerevan!
The 35-some youths had guided visits at the State Museum of Literature and Art and the Komitas Museum, and after a meal at a local Syrian-Armenian restaurant, went over to the Malyan Tatron Malyan Theatre (one of the top playhouses in the country) to see Aghasi Aivazyan's, ‘The Physiology of Race’ . . . but wait, our AAF youths not only saw the play but were warmly welcomed by and chatted with the actors before the presentation. We can safely say the youths and teachers alike returned home fully nourished!
