repertoire of classic chamber music and ethnic folk music
by distinguished Armenian, Russian and Western composers.

for lighthouse. Indeed the choir is seen as a symbol of hope
by fans around the world. The Choir entertains worldwide audiences,
participates in international competitions and encourages
people with disabilities to live full and active lives.
