Armen Movsessian (Armenian: Արմեն Մովսեսյան, born in Yerevan, Armenia) is a violin player.[1] His formal training as a musician began as a child. He received his high school diploma from the Tchaikovsky's School of Music for the musically gifted, and earned his B.A. and Master’s from the Yerevan Conservatory named after Komitas. He was one of only fifty-four violinists worldwide to be invited to compete in the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis in 1990. This is when he decided to move to the United States and has since been named Concertmaster for the Panama National Symphony in Panama City, Panama, and for the New Hampshire Symphony Orchestra. Movsessian was an instructor of violin, viola, and chamber music at Clark University and an instructor of violin at the Longy School of Music, both in Massachusetts. He has performed during the 2003 and 2004 Ethnicity world tours with Yanni, as well as the 2005 Yanni Live! The Concert Event, and Yanni Voices tours.
