Posted on February 11, 2009
Hayastan All Armenian Fund awarded the Yerevan Conservatory student Mary Khojanyan with a diploma and the Best Student 2008 Prize. The prize equaling to $500 US was founded by Hrair and Martha Albarian. In 2008 Mary was also granted with Aram Khachatryan silver medal.

“Only students with excellent academic records and active involvement in music and social life can apply for the Best Student Prize. Final selection, out of the three best Conservatory students, is made by the benefactor himself. Hopefully, the prize will encourage Conservatory students to do their best this year”, commented Aida Khachikyan, Advisor to the Hayastan Fund Executive Director.

Mary Khojanyan is a second-year student studying at the Yerevan State Conservatory’s Orchestra faculty. The young musician had her first concert when she was nine. Since then, she has had many more accomplishments, pursuing her career both in the homeland and abroad. Mary said that she had been longing for her own violin and now there was a real chance for her dream to come true. Mar’s brilliant performance at the ceremony was the best “Thank you.”
