On December 26, 2019 in the Armenian Embassy to China, the Ambassador of the Republic of Armenia to China, Mr. Sergey Manassarian and the Founder & Chairman of Armstrong International Music & Arts Enterprises Ltd., Wray Armstrong jointly announced that the Armenian National Philharmonic Orchestra would tour in China from December 27, 2019 to January 9, 2020, and expressed hope that this visit can be an opportunity to promote more cultural exchange between China and Armenia.

The press conference was attended by representatives of over a dozen leading Chinese TV channels and magazines, such as CCTV International, CCTV 7, Phoenix TV, China Magazine, Xinhua News and others.

The Armenia Ambassador to China, Mr. Sergey Manassarian said in his speech that the concert-tour will have a great success and ANPO will come back to China again and again, expanding the geography of tours, attracting larger audience and establishing stronger bonds. He noticed that historic tour will rise the Armenian-Chinese fruitful cooperation in the field of culture to qualitatively new level - giving an opportunity for the Chinese audience to get to know the Armenian music and high professionalism of the Armenian musicians, to feel the spirit of centuries-old culture and just to enjoy wonderful performances. 

The founder of Armstrong International Agency, Wray Armstrong mentioned in his speech that this is the first time that the Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra led by Eduard Topchjan is visiting China and it will inevitably become an example for the cultural exchange between the two countries under “The Belt and Road” program. Armenia has many great composers such as Aram Khachaturian and its musical culture has a feature of strong national color and Armenian sentiment. We hope we can bring more Armenian culture projects to China together with Armenian Embassy in China, and expect to spread excellent Chinese cultural works to Armenia and other ‘The Belt and Road’ countries.” 

The Orchestra will tour around ten Chinese cities with a concluding concert in Beijing on January 9, 2020.
