The Hover Chamber Choir was formed on a personal initiative in 1992 without support from the government or other donors. Since the very beginning it has devoted itself to typical Armenian choral singing, but remains open to all other styles and genres which are tightly connected to the European choral tradition.

The year 2000 was an important year for the choir, as it took home a gold medal at the first World Choir Games in Linz. In addition to its numerous concerts around the world and with its extremely diverse programmes, the Hover Chamber Choir also records extensively for audio tracks.

It is understandable that its programme director dedicates special attention to Armenian composers, to presenting new projects, and doing a sterling job promoting the contemporary choral literature of his homeland. The repertoire for this concert will be similarly designed.
