On Novermber 25, HAIK German-Armenian Students Club organized an event devoted to the 10 years anniversary of its partnership with the Armenian General Benevolent Union, in Rostock, Germany. This was the occasion to celebrate a successful collaboration that has positively contributed to developing the life of the Armenian community in Germany as well as to strengthen the bonds of friendship between Germans and Armenians.
The main objective of HAIK is to build a network of Armenian and German students, young professionals and academicians to forge educational, professional and cultural relationships between the two nations. It aims at strengthening the current and future potential of Armenians, in Armenia and in diaspora, through various projects in order to support and develop the huge potential of Armenians.
The anniversary concert, which took place at the Chamber Music Hall of the University of Music and Theater in Rostock, brought together five AGBU Scholarship recipients to perform on the same evening: Nora Shekyan (violin), Ruben Mirzoyan (clarinet), Shushan Ghazaryan (guitar), Karo Chatschaturyan (tenor), Marianne Uzankichyan (piano).
The programme included musical pieces of Armenian composers, such as Komitas and Khachaturyan, and works of non-Armenian world-famous composers, such as Schubert, Brahms and Paganini.
