The closing event of the project “Sung Museum” was held in the Ethnographic Museum in Tbilisi, Georgia. The event was held with the support of the Ministry of Culture of Georgia, the final concert of the Ethnographic Museum, named after Giorgi Chitaia and Ensemble “Didgori” joint project.
During the event, Ensembles – “Didgori” and “Margaliti” – performed musical numbers at the event. The Director of the Ethnographic Museum, Nino Chipashvili and other guests were also present in the evening.
With the support of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Youth of Georgia, from July 9, the Ethnographic Museum of Tbilisi hosted a new project – “Singing Museum”.
Over a few months, eight folk concerts (5 solo concert ensemble “Didgori” and three joint concerts with different folk ensembles: Lalkhori, Pearl, Perkhisa) and four folk song lessons/workshops were held. Apart from the ensemble “Didgori”, other choirs and lotbars (Lika Liparteliani, Beka and Gocha Bidzinashvili) participated in the events from Tbilisi and regions.
During the project, over several months, visitors to the museum had the opportunity to hear folklore from different angles, take folk song lessons and sing with professionals. It should be noted that the initiative of the ensemble “Didgori” has served tremendous public interest and has attracted both foreign and Georgian listeners to the museum.
