On behalf of the The Friends of John Bilezikjian thank you very much for donations, letters of support and prayers. Our first function, “The Magic of John Bilezikjian” concert for 2011 was a great success. Your participation made a dramatic difference in the success of the concert and its subsequent video and recording.
This thank you is long overdue but through your generosity and the generosity of others, we are officially the John Bilezikjian Foundation and we have non-profit status. Please know that your contribution will be fully tax deductible as the John Bilezikjian Foundation. Inc., under Section 501(c)(3).
The specific purpose of this corporation is to honor the lifetime achievements of John Bilezikjian in music and education; to support those striving to continue his legacy.
In keeping with our Mission Statement and for as long as John is with us, we hope to raise enough funds to complete the recording and DVD. We are committed to furthering John’s legacy by doing several projects and finally to provide financial support to a deserving individual who will continue in the field of Ethnomusicology, and the art of the oud.
Thanks again both of you, for your love and kindness over the years. We will continue to advise you of our latest progress on the CD/DVD.
