GoFundMe for Ukrainian music students

Martha Wall News about Other Groups

Greetings Colleagues,

My former piano teacher, who lives in the East Bay, has learned of a GoFundMe campaign that is raising money to send Ukrainian music students to an amazing music festival that will take place this July in Estonia. The goal is to pay 100% of the fees for the students, so they can attend and participate at no cost to their families. They need our help!

Here is some info from the GoFundMe page (link at the bottom where you can read more about it)

"Hiiumaa Homecoming Music Festival was founded in 2006 with the mission of promoting classical music and supporting young musicians' dreams to pursue their careers at the highest possible level.

Along with many people worldwide, the festival stands strong in solidarity with Ukraine against Russian aggression. This year, we decided to prioritize invitations to Ukrainian students and provide the entire festival experience at absolutely no cost to them. But we need your help.100% ofyour generous contributions will be used to cover their music lessons from world-renown artists, travel, and accommodation expenses. …

…   We seek to provide solace and peace to young Ukrainian musicians through music and learning at our summer festival.

The highlight and trademark of our festival is the collaboration between guest artists and students who will share the stage in festival performances. ...

… The festival presents world-renowned musicians from over 15 countries on a beautiful island in Estonia. Guest artists and professors from Tallinn Academy of Music, London Royal College and Guildhall School, Eastman School of Music, Hague Conservatory, Imola Conservatory, Tel-Aviv Buchmann-Mehta School of Music, Vienna University, members of London Philharmonic, Hague Philharmonic, Haydn Orchestra di Bolzano, world-leading soloists take part in concerts and masterclasses.

Our 2022 program is scheduled to take place during the last week of July. Students will participate in masterclasses and  performances during the festival.
