Heartfelt greetings on the start of the “Arno Babajanyan 7th International Competition-Festival for Junior and Young Pianists” dedicated to the prominent representative of the Armenian composing school of the 20th century and the outstanding pianist Arno Babajanyan. 
The presence of each and every of you is truly important here in Arno Babajanyan’s fatherland. Preserving, performing and propagating his bright and vigorous music is not only our spiritual mission, but is primarily a nice opportunity to touch the base of its great aesthetic value.
 I am certain that the dazzling sounds of Babajanyan’s art will encourage the young fellows to present themselves at their best during this significant competition.
I am convinced that this competition-festival, alike the previous ones, will discover names of a number of talented pianists. 
Best regards to all of the participants, their teachers and parents, the jury members.
Wishing you all the best of luck!
