The 2nd edition  of the Summer Music School in 2017,  was highly effective and confirmed the importance of these intensive studies with expert musicians. In February 2018 the Low Brass Winter Music School was organized, from June 18 - 28. Selected talents received valuable masterclasses from principals of the orchestra majoring in flute, oboe, bassoon, French horn, trombone and tuba. On June 29, a concert featuring the active SMS participants took place at the Aram Khachaturian Concert Hall.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — YerazArt celebrated its tenth anniversary on October 23 with a concert titled “A Prelude to Our Future,” at the Longy School of Music’s Pickman Hall. It featured violinist Diana Adamyan, pianist Nara Avetisyan, trumpeter Daniel Melkonyan and tenor Tigran Ohanyan, all young and talented artists originally from Armenia, with Nuné Hakobyan as collaborative pianist. A cocktail reception followed at the Sheraton Commander Hotel.

YerazArt Summer Music School (SMS), was launched in collaboration with the Armenian National Philharmonic Orchestra (ANPO) and Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) on June 29th. The School’s objective is to give students of Armenian descent, aged 14+, the opportunity to learn from the best Armenian orchestra musicians as well as a platform where they can be spotted for future possible engagement with the ANPO.

YerazArt SMS offers lessons in the following orchestra professions: oboe, bassoon, French horn, flute, trumpet, trombone and clarinet.

In an effort to support disciplines that are endangered due to  lack of adequate instruments, YerazArt donated instruments to select music schools. A clarinet was donated to Avet Gabrielyan Music School, a bassoon to Sayat Nova Music School and an oboe to Sarian Special Music School in Yerevan.
