Artur Grigoryan, a 19-year-old student of the Yerevan Conservatory, took the first place in the international piano competition. Hundreds of musicians from 33 countries of the world took part in the competition. 

The performance from Verdi’s opera Rigoletto was recognized as the best of his performances. 

The pianist took first place and received a special prize-an annual scholarship of $ 19,000 for studying at the University of East Tennessee. The pianist plans to take part in the International Harmonium Competition, where he will play for the first time in the category of 19-35 years.
