The children from Sunday school AGBU Sofia Hayler participated in the holiday concert at the “Day of the Bulgarian National Revival Leaders”, organized by the Foundation “Child and folklore” which took place at the museum “Earth and people”.

Part of the children of Sunday School AGBU Sofia “Hayler” performed a song dedicated to the capital Yerevan: “Hey Gian Yerevan.” 

We welcomed our dear guest – the soloist from Armenia Elena Yerevan /guitar/ at AGBU Sofia's office. 

At the end of October 2020, AGBU Sofia welcomed the famous soloists from Armenia – Hasmik Haroutuniyan (soprano) and Eteri Hovhannisyan (canon) and together with Maestro Levon Manukyan from Bulgaria they created a special CD in memory of the great Komitas.

The recording took place at the famous singer Arthur Nadossian’s Sound City Studio in Sofia. During their stay our dear guests had the opportunity to visit St. Kevork Armenian church in Plovdiv. They met Ter Hratch Muradian who welcomed them and explained the history of the Armenian repiques exposed at crypto museum within the church. They also had a city tour at Old Plovdiv, full of beautiful historical places and also to the well-known Bachkovo monastery.
