For the third year in a row, YerazArt moved ahead with its Instrument Donation Program, in a constant effort to alleviate the financial burden of select music schools and to revive some disciplines that are in danger of extinction for lack of new or sufficient instruments.
The following schools were selected to benefit from this year’s Instrument Donation Program:
In Februrary, Aparan Music School received two new pianos.
In the same month, Sayat Nova Music School received one oboe, and YerazArt also provided for a full year of paid instruction by one of the few remaining oboe teachers in Armenia.
In March, Kapan School was gifted 18 much-needed music stands.
Gyumri School received two trumpets in June.
In the same month, Tchaikovsky Special School also received one trumpet.
Finally, in September, Yerevan State Conservatory received one oboe.
YerazArt is currently considering more instrument donation opportunities before the end of the year, including a donation of pianos to the Talin Music School.
