Couple of days ago the 12th Aram Khachaturian International Competition came to its logistic end. Thanks to this contest the world cultural arena became filled with new talents and smarts which are destined to bestow us with endless moments of joy and happiness for many-many years. For the first time in the history of the competition it was held in the category of conducting and followed the target to represent and support the promotion of young conductors. The trip to Armenia turned into another step to the Olympus for the participants of the Khachaturian Competition. None of them left our country without an experience, impressions, diplomas and titles.
We’d like you to get acquainted with one of the most unique and brilliantly performed conductors of our competition and who was deservedly selected on the post of the assistant conductor of the State Youth Orchestra of Armenia during the 2016/2017 concert season.
Ladies and gentlemen, signore e signori, please welcome Beatrice Venezi!!!
This young lady and her impressive career give the convincing REFUTING answer to the point: “Women can’t be conductors”.
Conductor, pianist and composer Beatrice Venezi was born in 1990 in one of the most picturesque sights of Italy, Tuscan city of Lucca. Multitalented nature of Beatrice provided her with the plenty of awards and interesting collaborations with worldly accepted orchestras and festivals. Graduate of “His Royal Highness” Italian music school, Beatrice became the chief conductor of the Orchestra Scarlatti Young, Napoli. Since 2015 she has been chosen for the Audio Innovative Thinking program developed by Audi. In July 2016 she will make her debut at the Festival Puccini Torre del Lago with “Turandot” by Ferruccio Busoni.
On behalf of the whole team of the State Youth Orchestra and the Aram Khachaturian International Competition we send our hottest congrats to Beatrice. We are 200 % sure that our collaboration with Beatrice will become the real Wow Factor.
Arrivederci in Yerevan!!!
