According to the parents of the scholarship holders, the staff of the ‘’Music for Future’’ Foundation has done its best for its fellows during the pandemic period.


"Master classes have been held, which are very necessary and important for the young musician. The joint performance of compositions at concerts helps children overcome a number of obstacles, and this is very important for a musician: I see the compassionate attitude of the management and staff of the Foundation, the willingness to help children in solving any professional problem’’, mentioned Tamar Charkhifalakyan, scholarship holder Gur Sargsyan's mother.


She also added that a warm atmosphere is created among the children while preparing for the concerts, and they work with each other with great love.


According to scholarship holder Davit Tonoyan's parent, Alvard Nakhoyan, children have become more hardworking and independent during these months. As a result of making joint performances for the concerts, the children have gained team-working skills, which was a new phenomenon for many of them. Our expectations were met, I really want this initiative of the Foundation to be long-lasting, and other talented children also have the opportunity to participate in the competition, win and find their unique place in the field of music.


According to scholarship holder Asya Anisimova's parent, Kristina Anisimova, during these months the communication between the scholarship holders while preparing for the concerts, participating in master classes, in addition to professional skills, taught the children to be even more friendly and caring towards each other. "The children became more conscientious, realized that this project is different from others, and here they need to be more conscientious and take serious responsibility for music․ "Everything the Foundation does for children is much more than expectations of the parents."


The next concerts of "Music for Future" scholarship holders will take place on May 7, at 4 PM at Yerevan Music School after Stepan Jrbashyan, and on May 12, at 2 PM at Yerevan Specialized Secondary Music School after P. Tchaikovsky.
