The second International Olympiad of Arts, organized by the Azerbaijan Youth Union (AYU), has been held at the Rashid Behbudov Song Theater.
The project aims at acquaintance with talented children and youth, the improvement of knowledge of participants and leaders of groups, development of relations between countries and heads of collectives and musical educational institutions.
Georgian vocal-instrumental ensembles also took part in the Olympiad.
"I would like to note the increase in the number of participants in the nominations - pianoforte, academic vocal and variety vocal, however, the participants in the nominations - the wind instrument and the vocal became much less. The jury evaluated performances in various genres and age categories from 7 to 16 years.
To maintain objectivity the name of the participant or the collective was not announced. The points were exhibited only by the number," said AYU Deputy Chairman Aziz Azizov.
The jury consisted of Ayten Ahmadova, director of the Art Gymnasium at the Azerbaijan National Conservatory, Rimma Mammadova, honored art worker, honored teachers Gulnara Karimova and Aflaruz Mammadov, senior lecturer Maharram Magerramov, as well as Dmitry Babayev, Yevgeniya Mammadova, Rauf Musayev, Vugar Musali, Tahir Eynullayev, Bahram Mirzoyev, Svetlana Fadeyeva - Bedirhanova, Nodar Khandolishvili and Esteban Isnardi.
