On the occasion of the events taking place within the framework of the 25th anniversary of the independence of Armenia, the choir Armenian Little Singers held performances in Denmark in September this year. Concerts took place in the capital Copenhagen, as well as in Herning and Haslev. The choir also visited Gylling to pay tribute to Karen Jeppe who saved thousands of Armenian orphans and women in the years of the Armenian Genocide. To honour her, they performed a song near her memorial. A meeting with the Midwest choir, who had previously visited the Little Singers in Armenia, took place in Herning.

The concert in the capital took place on the 18th of September in the Copenhagen Cathedral (Vor Frue Kirke). The Dean of the Cathedral, Anders Gadegaard, gave a speech during the concert. He welcomed the guests and noted the importance of celebrating the 25th anniversary of the independence of Armenia in the Cathedral. Speaking about the old Christian nation, Armenians, he noted that the Armenian nation has a lot to offer the world. He added that those visiting Armenia witness what achievements the Armenian nation has had during these 25 years and that he predicts a great future for Armenia.

A speech was given also by the Armenian Ambassador to Denmark, H.E. Mr. Hrachya Aghajanyan, who noted that it is our duty to build a secure, safe and prosperous Armenia which will contribute not only to its but will contribute also to the development of other nations.

At the concert the Little Singers performed pieces of work from Komitas, David Halajyan, Giovanni Pergolesi and Tatul Altunyan, as well as a Danish folk song. The concert hall was full and it ended under the thunderous applause of the audience.
