A ‘Symphonic’ Bus

A classical music concert in public transport. Merry musical buses are driving around Yerevan

At first there is the bewilderment on passengers’ faces, then they enjoy the compositions by Komitas, Mozart, Piazzolla, and as they get off the bus, they applaud to the musicians. Live classical music could be heard in some of Yerevan buses for several days already. The musicians thus try to bring the Yerevan residents, who hurry to work or classes, closer to the classical art.

An unusual musical flash mob entitled ‘BuSymphony’ is held on the initiative of Ashot Tigranyan, a violinist. The campaign participants are the performers of the United American and Armenian Chamber Orchestra, set by Ashot Tigranyan Cultural and Musical Foundation.

The flash mob aims to prepare the music lovers for the first concert of the united orchestra that is scheduled for November. The Foundation’s administration assures that the concert will feature extremely talented young musicians performing as part of the orchestra.
