TEHRAN -- Iranian composer and violin virtuoso Bardia Kiaras has been selected for the jury of the Renaissance International Music Festival, which will be held in Gyumri, Armenia in April.
 
He will be on the panel for the composing section of the festival, which will take place in the second largest city of the country from April 10 to 19, Persian media announced on Monday.
 
“I am glad to have the honor of being a member of a jury in youth and I hope it will be good experience in my career in music,” Kiaras told MNA.
 
He has been conductor of Iran’s National Orchestra since December 2010.
 
The festival has been organized by the Republic of Armenia Ministry of Culture and the Yerevan State Komitas Conservatory.
 
The aim of the organizers is to advocate classical art, to establish new friendly ties between musicians and performers of different nationalities, and to bring foreign artists closer to Armenian culture.
 
Ensembles and musicians from Georgia, Russia, Greece, France, Italy, Estonia, Kazakhstan, Lithuania and several other countries will attend the event.
