“Тsip, tsip, tsiptsalyarin…”, the children’s choir of the Ashgabat School of Arts No. 2 sings in sonorous voices. Despite the summer holidays, rehearsals are held here every day: the guys are preparing for the grand opening of the Doşkent entertainment park in Ashgabat - a gift from the friendly Uzbek people. The children's song "Dzhudzhelerin" ("Chickens") is popular not only in our country, but also in Uzbekistan, and the participants of the children's choir, after arrangement by the composer Saparmurat Kairov, will perform it in Turkmen and Uzbek languages.
Saparmurat Kairov is the director of the school, he also leads the school choir and writes children's choir songs for it. For many years, Saparmurat Kairovich has maintained close creative ties with Turkmen poets such as Khudaikuli Kurbanov, Suleiman Ilamanov, Gulshirin Khanova, People's Writer of Turkmenistan Dovletgeldy Annamuradov, Maral Annaeva. And as a result of the poems of these poets and the music of Saparmurat Kairov, very nice, childishly cheerful songs appear, which are picked up by other choral groups of the country.
- The guys visit the choir with great pleasure, - says Saparmurat Kairovich. - The choir takes part in the opening of many state events in the capital, and the children of our school love to perform.
In addition to choirmastering, Saparmurat Kaimov is the conductor of the Altyn Zekhin (Golden Talent) school orchestra, for which he also composes music. The hallmark of the Golden Talent Orchestra is the song "Vatan", written to the verses of Maral Annayeva.
The repertoire of the school accordion ensemble "Yashlyk" also includes compositions by Saparmurat Kairov. Among them, one of the most popular works is “Bagtyyarlyk Aidymy” (“Song of Happiness”). This ensemble, led by Irina Sarkisova, is also called the “10 White Accordions” ensemble, because the respected Arkadag, having heard their performance, presented each musician with a beautiful white instrument. In 2013, the Yashlyk ensemble became the winners of the Turkmen Altyn Asyry competition.
Ashgabat Art School No. 2 is always fun and interesting. Even during the summer holidays, the guys, leaving their gadgets at home, come to school for rehearsals. Ahead is the opening of a new amusement park, where boys and girls, using the privileges of childhood, will be able to ride on all the carousels and eat plenty of ice cream. Therefore, this pleasant event for the choristers themselves and their peers should become unforgettable.
