A pedal harp for my studies

<h4><strong>We have a new goal: &quot;DARE 200%&quot; to finance the harp completely.</strong></h4> <h4>Thank you so much for supporting Zora.&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;</h4> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/665839/53DCC97A-AF51-4CA8-9E3E-1341CD2A2412-1590240767.JPG" width="100%" /></p> <p>Let me present myself, my name is Zora Corbion. I am a 14 years old. When I was 8, I started playing the harp at the Harp Center Brussels with <a href="https://www.mariapalatine.com/" target="_blank">Maria Palatine</a>. She taught me solid basics and shared her love for the harp with a joy and gaiety that I too adapted into my own enthusiasm.&nbsp;</p> <p>When I was 8, I performed my first concert at The Harp Center Brussels, there was always a wonderful ambiance and we had a lot of fun and encouragement. &nbsp;</p> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer"><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="true" frameborder="0" height="281" scrolling="no" src="https://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fplayer.vimeo.com%2Fvideo%2F413128877%3Fapp_id%3D122963&amp;dntp=1&amp;display_name=Vimeo&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fvimeo.com%2F413128877&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.vimeocdn.com%2Fvideo%2F885761213_1280.jpg&amp;key=8b7d8dd6504d41af9a77662672aabc2a&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=vimeo" title="Vimeo embed" width="500"></iframe></div> <p>By the time I was 11, we recorded my first video with my mother on the cello and with me playing the harp.&nbsp;</p> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer"><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="true" frameborder="0" height="281" scrolling="no" src="https://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2Fs1olW4W8tqk%3Ffeature%3Doembed&amp;display_name=YouTube&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Ds1olW4W8tqk&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2Fs1olW4W8tqk%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=8b7d8dd6504d41af9a77662672aabc2a&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" title="YouTube embed" width="500"></iframe></div> <p>During summer vacations, of course, I took my harp with me to share the music with others and to practice.&nbsp; That was a much appreciated endeavor. &nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/662233/20170711_193859-1588246248.jpg" width="100%" /><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/662234/20170720_140939-1588246261.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p>At the end of my primary school I had to choose a secondary school.&nbsp; In French speaking schools there was no possibility to choose a musical option. Then by chance in a French Fries Place in Ostende, my family and I talked to the lady cooking the fries.&nbsp; Talking to her, we discovered that there is a Flemish secondary school with artistic options in Brussels Laeken; <a href="https://www.kunsthumaniorabrussel.be/" target="_blank">Kunsthumaniora Brussel.</a> Now I had direction!</p> <p>Since I spent all of my primary school years in a French speaking school, I didn&rsquo;t speak Dutch which I decided to sign up for in the new school.&nbsp; I decided, anyway, to go to that school because there was a great opportunity and most importantly of all, because they had options for music, dance and theatre. I was very motivated, and even though it was not in French I attended.&nbsp; I immediately participated in Dutch workshops and took private lessons to learn the basics of the Dutch language and felt more at ease to start the school.&nbsp; I made the right choice because I love my school and feel that I&rsquo;m in the right place.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/662235/IMG-20190405-WA0001-1588246959.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p>For almost two years, I have a new harp teacher at <a href="https://www.kunsthumaniorabrussel.be/" target="_blank">Kunsthumaniora Brussel :</a> Marta Szabo.&nbsp; She is a very good teacher for classical harp and she always encourages me to progress.&nbsp; I need, however, a pedal harp to continue my studies in classical music. This fund raising request is necessary to enable me to purchase the new instrument to continue. Without it, I can&rsquo;t progress anymore or learn new techniques. I need a pedal harp!</p> <p>We rented a Celtic Harp at the Harp Center Brussels the first years.&nbsp; Now for the last couple of years our neighbor Sarah lent me her Celtic Harp. During my harp lessons at school, I played on their concert harp. Now it&rsquo;s time to be able to practice at home on a pedal harp so I can play the more demanding classical music.&nbsp;</p> <p>Sadly, it is not possible to rent a pedal harp and they are very expensive to buy, costing between 15,000 E and 30,000 E. With this campaign, I need to contribute to this purchase, as my parents can&rsquo;t afford to pay for all of it. &nbsp;</p> <p><strong>More details follow about my curriculum of study:</strong></p> <p>I am a student in the second year of the artistic secondary school<a href="https://www.kunsthumaniorabrussel.be/" target="_blank"> Kunsthumaniora, Brussel</a>. Soon I will be entering the third year and will have 12 hours of music every week: harp, ensemble-play, choir, music theory and singing (my second instrument). &nbsp; I will be participating full in the music option, so I will play my harp for several hours. I know that I love music and I love my school.&nbsp; With the pedal harp I can continue.&nbsp; At the end of my 6th year of secondary school I will do a presentation on my harp.&nbsp; I will then be very prepared to enter the music conservatoire. &nbsp;</p> <p>I thank you profoundly from my heart for any contribution which will allow me to progress on my musical path.&nbsp;</p> <p>Please listen to a few pieces that I played on the Celtic Harp. &nbsp;</p> <p><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="true" frameborder="0" height="281" scrolling="no" src="https://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fplayer.vimeo.com%2Fvideo%2F413564030%3Fapp_id%3D122963&amp;dntp=1&amp;display_name=Vimeo&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fvimeo.com%2F413564030&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.vimeocdn.com%2Fvideo%2F886282347_1280.jpg&amp;key=8b7d8dd6504d41af9a77662672aabc2a&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=vimeo" title="Vimeo embed" width="500"></iframe></p> <p><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="true" frameborder="0" height="281" scrolling="no" src="https://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fplayer.vimeo.com%2Fvideo%2F406777379%3Fapp_id%3D122963&amp;dntp=1&amp;display_name=Vimeo&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fvimeo.com%2F406777379&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.vimeocdn.com%2Fvideo%2F877313246_1280.jpg&amp;key=8b7d8dd6504d41af9a77662672aabc2a&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=vimeo" title="Vimeo embed" width="500"></iframe><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="true" frameborder="0" height="281" scrolling="no" src="https://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fplayer.vimeo.com%2Fvideo%2F406777137%3Fapp_id%3D122963&amp;dntp=1&amp;display_name=Vimeo&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fvimeo.com%2F406777137&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.vimeocdn.com%2Fvideo%2F877312691_1280.jpg&amp;key=8b7d8dd6504d41af9a77662672aabc2a&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=vimeo" title="Vimeo embed" width="500"></iframe></p>

Allocation of funds

<p><strong>Now that we reached 100 % of the fund raising within 4 days, we have a new goal: &quot;DARE 200%&quot;</strong></p> <p>We hope to find a second-hand pedal harp for 12,000&euro;.</p> <p>The fund raising will contribute 100% to pay for the pedal harp.</p> <p>There&rsquo;s an 8% commission which will be paid to the KissKissBankBank site as the campaign is successful.</p> <p>Thank you so much for supporting Zora</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
