Galaxy Group of Companies continues to implement “thank you” initiatives for the employees in line with its corporate values.
The project “Let’s Go to a Classical Concert” is restarting with the opening of the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra’s concert season. It was initiated in 2020 by the Co-Founder and Co-Chairman of Galaxy Group of Companies, Gurgen Khachatryan, and the Founder and Principal Conductor of the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra, Sergey Smbatyan. Combining their efforts to increase classical music’s accessibility – was the aim of this endeavor. As a result, employees of Galaxy Group of Companies had an opportunity to enjoy classical music with their family members, friends, and loved ones.
“Classical music is an education and has the power to change people’s minds. It unites the “Galaxy” community, becomes a part of our culture, and since 2020 it has become an institutional approach for our teams, who regularly listen to symphony performances with families and friends and communicate with classical art. I thank our employees and their families for appreciating this project, as well as the fact that the number of people in our community who enjoy classical music is growing by the day,” said Co-Founder and Co-Chairman of Galaxy Group of Companies, Gurgen Khachatryan.
The initiative started the development of a new corporate culture that served as a model for other Armenian companies.
“We are attempting to make classical music a way of life in the public’s perception. We want it to be an exceptional event for people, not just to listen to a classical music concert, but to enjoy a legendary performer or a rarely heard piece in a concert hall. This is the main goal we see as the basis of our corporate partnership with “Galaxy” — culturally active involvement of the employees of the Group of Companies by regularly inviting them to the concerts of our orchestra,” said Founder and Principal Conductor of the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra, Sergey Smbatyan.
Galaxy Group of Companies has a comprehensive partnership with Armenia’s State Symphony Orchestra. The Symphony Orchestra, in particular, presented for the first time at the event commemorating the 22nd anniversary of “Galaxy”, a special program – the best rock songs of all time in a classical arrangement.
Galaxy Group of Companies is one of Armenia’s largest employers and taxpayers, employing 2200+ people.
