Camp for 20 advanced harpists enrolled in the Urban Youth Harp Ensemble to perfect performance repertoire

About the Project

The Urban Youth Harp Ensemble is a unique organization in the City of Atlanta. It provides harp instruction to urban students free of charge. The UYHE began in 2000 with two students and a borrowed harp. We now have 86 students and 25 harps. The harp camp will be held at Drew Charter School, June 20-24, 2016 from 8:30-12:00. Five of our program graduates are currently enrolled in the study of harp in college degree programs at the University of Michigan, Georgia State University, Bard College, Converse College and the University of Georgia. The first UYHE student has earned a masters degree in harp performance from Boston University. He is currently touring as harpist in the Sons of Serendip quartet after winning 4th place in the finals of America's Got Talent. Your donation will support the stipend for the Artistic Director and a teaching assistant in the amount of $2500, $500.00 for music, $1800.00 for harp strings and $200.00 for daily snacks for students.
