Areas of Expertise
Organizing music festivals, concerts, & operas
We work together with individual artists, established art organizations within Armenia and internationally to present a variety of music and music-related events both in Armenia and abroad.
Research and rediscovery of forgotten historical works and artists
One of our main objectives at YMA is our devotion to research, rediscovery, publication, and presentation of valuable musical and related works of the past which have undeservedly been swept away by the tide of times. Currently there are many living composers creating the finest musical works with no possibilities to present their works either in published or recorded forms. YMA offers them such possibilities.
Artist Management Agency
At YMA, we truly believe that in today's classical music field, singers, instrumentalists, conductors and composers gain a competitive edge and increase their visibility through strategic management of their careers by a dedicated representative agency.
