Gillan to open the Armenian music school

Memorial inscription in memory of Jon Lord on a donated keyboard

The Armenian music school saga nears its successful completion. After WhoCares project had donated money for the school reconstruction, the donation was tripled by another charity and Armenian government, with Millbank Music from Canada donating on top of that more than $20,000 worth of music instruments to the school in memory of Jon Lord. The Azat Shirinyan Octet School of Music opening is now scheduled for September with Ian Gillan as a guest of honour. The school was completely destroyed by an earthquake in December 1988.

Thanks to Blabbermouth for the info.
