The new congress hall in Montelimar, France, which is nearing completion, will be named after Charles Aznavour. The French Armenian singer has given his approval to the City and the metropolitan area of Montelimar Sesame, which is in charge of the project, Le Dauphine reports.
The inauguration will take place during the month of October, in the presence of the artist and other celebrities.
The deputy mayor of Montelimar Franck Reynier, president of the urban community, said “it is a great honor” that Charles Aznavour, 89, agrees to give his name to the new convention center.
This structure is composed of a large hall with 1,600 seats and another 4,000 places for standing audience, adjoining the old hall of the Mistral space, which is being renovated.
The inauguration date is yet to be confirmed, but the first public events are planned for the weekend of October 19 and 20.
