Rita Movsesian committed herself to music when living in Baghdad/Iraq, where she was born and raised. Even then she placed her emphasis on Armenian and Arabic music and literature. After her move to Austria, music still remained the focus of the Armenian ex-patriot’s life. She received vocal training from a wide variety of renowned singing teachers and continued her practice at the Salzburg Mozarteum in the fields of classical-western music and jazz. There followed a great number of concerts in both Austria and abroad.
