Ohan Durian's statue
The 100th anniversary of the Armenian musician and conductor Ohan Durian was marked by the opening of the Maestro's memorial statue on Azatutyun (Freedom) Square, in the area near the National Opera and Ballet Academic Theater named after Alexander Spendiaryan. The author of the sculpture is Getik Baghdasaryan.
The opening ceremony was performed by Ohan Durian's closest friend Dr. Vahan Vardapetyan and Durian's widow Mrs. Alice Durian.
The bust, standing on columns facing the sky, is very impressive and embodies the whole nature of the Maestro.
