13-year-old Davit Babayan is one of Armenia's top violin talents. He is the winner of several national and international competitions and recently performed as a soloist with the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra. and for a major fundraising event in NY for the excellent organization, Children of Armenia Fund (COAF). He plays on a student violin and CodaBow International bow on loan to him from the Atken Armenian Foundation instrument bank. He is a student of Professor Alexander Kosemyan in Yerevan. This June, in Yerevan, he will participate in our Զարթոնք / Zartonk Academy masterclasses with great violin pedagogue and AAF friend, Mr. Martin Bazarian of Toronto.
He plays a violin and bow on loan to him from the Atken Armenian Foundation instrument bank and is a member of the "New Names", "Meknark" and "Artis Futura" programs. He is a student of Professor Alexander Kosemyan in Yerevan. This young talent deserves all the support his Nation can give him, including, at his level, a much better violin! We hope to be able to provide him with a violin on loan that reflects his level of playing. Do you have a good (or great) instrument lying around? Well, donating it to the Atken Armenian Foundation may be an excellent way to benefit from our tax receipts (donation in kind) and help a deserving talent in Armenia! Contact us for more details.
