Clarification Of The Results Of The 2005 Vakhtang Jordania International
New York, NY - In our recent press release, the Vakhtang Jordania
International Conducting Competition announced the results of its
2005 competition held in Kharkov, Ukraine.
Due to a mistake on our part, the incorrect names were given for the
Orchestra and Audience Favorites awards.
The Orchestra Favorite prize was awarded to Harutyun Arzumanyan of
Armenia. He founded the Armenian Chamber Orchestra and has frequently
conducted at the National Opera and Ballet Theatre of Armenia.
The Audience Favorite prize was awarded to Boguslav Kobierski of Poland,
who is the current conductor of the Etela-Karjala Sinfonietta of Finland.
A special distinction certificate was awarded to Shigekazu Yonezaki of
Japan, who is a regular guest conductor of many orchestras in his
country, including the New Japan Philharmonic.
Jennifer Bailey of Australia was also a Third Round participant and
special distinction certificate awardee. She has been director of the
U.K.'s Magdalen College Orchestra, the Hull Ladies Choir, the St.
Swithun's Ensemble and the Orchestra at St. Mary Magdalen.
The 2005 Vakhtang Jordania International Conducting Competition
was a great success, both artistically and as a means for continuing
to bring the Kharkov Philharmonic Orchestra
(http://www.jamesarts.com/KHRKVPHILWEBPAGE.htm) to the rest of the world.
In addition to the lively competition, contestants also participated in
a series of Master Classes and special events and enjoyed the opportunity
to have individual and small group instruction and interaction with jury
and orchestra members. Also important was the chance to meet and spend
time with other conductors from around the world. More about the 2005
competition at http://www.jamesarts.com/VJCNDCMP05WINNERS.htm.
Building on the great success of this year's event, planning for an
expanded and even more international 2006 Vakhtang Jordania International
Conducting Competition has already begun.
