AMERICAN PHILANTHROPISTS DONATE $10,000.00 TO ALAN HOVHANESS INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH CENTRE

October 2006 American Couple Donates $10,000 to Fund

American couple Danny and Carolyn Darby have donated $10,000 to the construction fund for the Alan Hovhaness International Research Centre in Yerevan.

Virginia-based Mr. and Mrs. Darby made the presentation to Martin Berfoksky, president of the Cristofori Foundation and American coordinator for the Hovhaness Centre. It is believed that this generous gift will cover some ten percent of the estimated basic construction and restoration costs for the Centre which is being established within the Charents Museum of Literature and Art on Yerevan's Republic Square.

Danny and Carolyn Darby also sponsored the 2004 world premiere of Hovhaness' Two Piano Concerto in Moscow and are known and appreciated for the many good works which they do.
