Gift of Music
Vanadzor is the third largest city in Armenia and was almost completely destroyed by the 1988 Spitak Earthquake. The Vanadzor Art School (a.k.a. Vanadzor Music School #3) was completely rebuilt with the support of the All Armenia Fund and the Arshak II Opera Committee in 2003. The School currently provides music instruction to more than 250 students on both classical as well as folk instruments and dance classes. This school is the best in the region and feeds many students to the Music College and ultimately to the Yerevan Conservatory. Many students from the Vanadzor Art School have competed in national contests and have placed well. Some of these students have gone on to compete abroad representing Armenia. Current and potential students who could excel in this field cannot afford to pay the monthly tuition. Scholarships are needed for these children.
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
