Testimonial Received from Mr. Stuart Maunder, Artistic Administrator, Opera Australia.

    A summary is replicated here:   

Yesterday, at our studios, I had the good fortune to hear the two Arminian singers Liliya Ovchyan and Gagik Shirinyan.

In my opinion, they are both well-trained opera singers who have obviously had considerable careers in Europe.

These singers possess rare voice types...Ms Liliya Ovchyan possesses a strong dramatic mezzo soprano. She would be ideal for the great roles of Verdi.....Mr. Gagik Shirinyan is a powerful bass with a particularly impressive middle register.

His resonant voice would be particularly suited to the Russian repertoire.....''

Testimonial Received from Mr. Patrick Togher BEc. LLB, Artists' Management. 

   A summary is replicated here: 

"Yesterday, I heard in audition Ms. Liliya Ovchyan and Gagik Shirinyan - two Arminian singers....

In my opinion, both artists possess strong, dramatic voices of International calibre.......Certainly, singers of this vocal size and colour are extremely rare in Australia.....

I would anticipate that Liliya & Gagik could secure opportunities with Opera Australia and the State opera companies as well as concert engagements with the ABC symphony orchestras.....

Testimonial Received from Mr. Evgueni Prokopiev, Unification Russian Weekly Newspaper.

    A summary is replicated here:   

"In the former Soviet Union I worked in the Ministry of Culture, where I organized musical shows and many concerts on a large scale.

Hence, I feel somewhat qualified to say, that Liliya Ovchyan, who is no stranger to me, is an internationally recognized opera singer and she was often invited to perform in our musical variety shows in Moscow, Leningrad and other cities in the USSR..........

Liliya Ovchyan certainly holds a distinguished position in the art of opera. I can, without hesitations, place her to the top list of opera singers. She was awarded a title of "The opera singer of the year" and she successfully performed in Canada and USA during Days of Soviet Culture in the years 1985-86................

Lyliya is truly a role model for all Australians, who are invited to follow her example...........

"Liliya Ovchyan and Gagik Shirinyan have been to our association for more than a year. During that time we have found them to be fine, upstanding individuals with outstanding morals, values and exceptional musical ability.

We had much pleasure in organising their recent concert, where the Hon Phyllip Ruddock MP, attended as our special guest....Their talents were enjoyed by many......

They are gifted in their field and would prove to be an excellent asset to Australian Opera.
