[Octet Music School]: More Support for FAR’s Octet Music School Construction.

April 9, 2010

Proceeds from rockers Tony Iommi and Ian Gillans’ March concert at Aram Khachaturian Concert Hall raised more than 18M AMD (approximately US$45k) for the renovation of FAR’s Octet Music School in Gyumri.

Both artists are also recording some new songs, which will be sold to further raise proceeds.

Ever since the two visited the school last October they have been dedicated to improving it. They began by donating several instruments and now their efforts are channeled toward a full-fledged reconstruction.
