As tradition has it, FAR’s Mathevosian scholars pay a visit to the Vanadzor Old Age Home (VOAH) at least once a year. The latest visit was pretty remarkable. More than 40 students dropped by to see the residents this week. In addition to spending time with them and exchanging stories, the students took part in a cohesive effort to brighten up the grounds. They cleaned, painted, tidied up the yard, and planted trees and rose bushes. Students from Yerevan Conservatory — recipients of FAR’s Sayan scholarships — topped the day off with a beautiful concert enjoyed by all.
