As reported Hayern Aysor, before the concert, the participants of the sixth stage of the “Ari Tun” Program gave their special concert at Freedom Square. During the daily Armenian language courses at Yeghishe Charents School of Yerevan, the participants of the sixth stage learned Armenian dances and performed those dances at Freedom Square, engaging passers-by and transmitting their love for the homeland and Armenian culture that has been instilled within them throughout the years.

Afterwards, the participants of the “Ari Tun” Program joined the participants of the “My Armenia” Pan-Armenian Festival and motivated the Armenian choirs of the Diaspora more with their warm rounds of applause. At the end of the concert, all the participating groups came up on stage and performed Alexander Harutyunyan’s song “Hayrenikis Het” (With My Homeland) together. The communication between the participants and the audience became a symbol of the strong ties between Armenia and the Diaspora and evidence of the unity and eternity of the Armenian nation.
