An Iranian church from Isfahan Province has won the second award of Poland's International Festival of Orthodox Church Music 'Hajnowka'.

In its first participation in the annual event, the Children's Choir 'Komitas' received the second award of the 'parish choirs' category.

Iran's Armenian Community formed the choir in 2005 and its members were trained by Armen Amirchanian, a graduate of Armenia's National Conservatory.

The international event, which aims to present the artistic and spiritual values of church music, has been organized by the Orthodox Church Music Foundation in Hajnowka, Poland.

The 27th edition of the polish festival was held from May 20 to 25, 2008 in Bialystok, Poland.
