The Armenian Little Singers (ALS) International Association was founded in Yerevan, Armenia, in 1992 under the auspices of the World’s Little Singers Association. Professor Tigran Hekekyan, who is the chief founder and current president of the ALS International Association, worked in collaboration with famous musicians from Armenian and abroad, such as Rafael Mangasaryan, Robert Petrosyan, Alexander Siranosyan, and Sirvard Ghazanchyan, to establish an organization that would cultivate and inspire young Armenian singers and encourage the development of choral art in Armenia.
The ALS association oversees many choirs that participate and contribute to the cultural life of Armenia and its diaspora. Some of these exemplary and award-winning choirs include: Little Singers of Armenia, Senior Choir (1992); Little Singers of Armenia, Junior Choir (1994); ALS Children’s choir in Los Angeles (1994); Little Singers of Artsakh (Stepanakert, 2011); the children’s choirs of Vank village and Gandzasar monastery (Artsakh, 2012); and more than fifty choirs in Yerevan city secondary schools (2000-2011). In 1994, the ALS association also promoted and founded the vocal and conducting department of the Tchaikovsky Special Music School of Yerevan.
