Our crowdfunding campaign was launched to support the Centennial Concert click here


The Armenian General Benevolent Union decided to call for support and generosity of all to help organizing the Armenian World Orchestra for this unique concert on April 21, 2015 at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, to commemorate the centenary of the Armenian Genocide, and pay tribute to the victims by honouring their memory through music .

The crowdfunding campaign was launched since December 2, 2014 and will last until February 27, 2015. Its goal is to gather € 15,000.


Why this call to crowdfunding?

The Armenian World Orchestra, will consist of 50 instrumentalists and 7 soloists coming from the biggest international orchestras and who volunteered to participate to this special concert. They will be accompanied by the Choir of the Gulbenkian Foundation, and directed by Alain Altinoglu on an original creation by Michel Petrossian.

To make them come to Paris, we still have to finance part of the travel costs of these volunteer artists from around the world..

By launching a crowdfunding campaign with the Armenian World Orchestra, we rely on everyone’s support and participation to gather the remaining travel costs which are evaluated at around € 300 euros per artist.

How to participate?

From December 1, 2014 to February 27, 2015, on, you can make a donation in 3 clicks and support our project : “The Centennial Concert”. Culture Time – crowdfunding platform for culture, art and education – is our partner.

EVERYONE can participate from € 10 to € 1,000 or more.
You will find here all the details:
