Virtual harp pandemic style!

About the Project

Friends, in these difficult days of Coronavirus isolation, we must continue to teach our harp students. We have the largest class of seniors for 2021 in the twenty year history of the Urban Youth Harp Ensemble. We want all twelve of them plus four underclassmen to be prepared for college auditions and advanced study in music. We are planning a virtual harp class for our seniors that will sharpen their skills in music theory, music history, sight singing, repertoire building, orchestral studies and career preparation. In order to accomplish this goal, we need your assistance in providing funds to update and purchase new subscriptions for technology software and external hard drives for our teachers.

We have a special situation because our harps are at the school and our students are at home. Only three of our 75 students have a harp at home. We are dealing with the uncertainties of if and when the 2020-2021 school year will begin and what form it will have. This is part of our effort to ensure engagement of our harpists until they are able to return to the school building.

We sincerely thank you for your support of our young harpists over the years and ask that you will give consideration to making a tax deductible donation to our project. The City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs will match your donation dollar for dollar.
