The “Summer Talent League” International Festival and Musical Competition was hosted once again at the Spanish resort of Lloret de Mar on 25-30 June 2023. The Polish delegation was represented by SSCE and accompanied by the Agency’s Artistic Director, Saribek Sargsyan, who was also invited to be one of the judges. Poland was represented by Marcelina Albrycht, who won the first place. Congratulations to the winner! Saribek Sargsyan delivered a special guest performance during the official concert of the Festival. The Festival was organized by ARS FESTA (managed by Asta Bagdonaviciene) who, in addition to the “Summer Talent League”, is responsible for three other major festivals-competitions: the “Music Talent League” and the “Christmas Talent League” in Vilnius and the "Palanga Talent League" in Palanga, Lithuania. The agency sets very high professional standards for all these events, and working with them is a pleasure. We hope you can join the upcoming ARS FESTA festivals.

Sar Sargsyan, the Armenian baritone singer resident in Poland, will give a recital entitled “Armenian Crane”. The event will take place on April 23, 2023 in the “Templum” concert hall in Łódź and will be part of the Łódź celebrations commemorating the Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day (1915). In Armenian culture, the crane is a symbol of longing for the lost homeland, and a symbol of the Armenian diaspora – Armenians scattered around the world. Each year on April 24, the Armenian community around the world observes the anniversary of the extermination of their people. Marches commemorating the massacre of Armenians are organized both in Armenia and abroad, including Poland. The recital programme will include works by well-known and renowned Armenian composers. The piano accompaniment will be provided by Jakub Czech, a Łódź-based pianist, arranger, teacher, and conductor. The event is organized by the Honorary Consulate of the Republic of Armenia in Łódź and “Nairi” – the Armenian Education and Cultural Centre.
All of us at SSCE wish you and your close ones a wonderful and sunny Easter. Enjoy!
