Help Get #Kimon2Berklee

Update posted by Jonathan Pienaar On Nov 23, 2016

Kimon has been granted an audition at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London. At this audition he will be able to apply for a full bursary, which would be a fantastic opportunity. As this is a change from our initial goal, we would like to get approval from all donors to use some of the funds raised thus far to send him to London for the audition.

Guildhall is recognised internationally as one of the best music schools, and it also offers a course in composition and arranging, which is perfect for Kimon.

If he isn't successful in this bursary attempt, he has been admitted to UCT to study a B.Mus, and he will continue to raise funds to go to Berklee either for a Summer School or to transfer his studies there at a later stage.

If you do not want your funds to be used for this purpose, please let us know and we will hold them in escrow until he can make a trip to Berklee.

Hi Friends and Folks

Thank you one and all for your generosity and kind messages.

The deadline for Kimon to attend Berklee in January 2017 has now been passed, but he has been given the option to defer until Sept 2017 or Jan 2018.

This means that we will continue this fundraiser to enable him to do so. In the meantime, we are investigating the possibility of his attending a Summer School at Berklee, where he can apply for a full scholarship. We believe that once they see him in person they will not want to let him go!

Kimon will also try and raise funds through concerts and corporate events, so if you know of anyone needing a musical performance, either as background to a dinner or as part of an event, please let us know.

Once again: thank you.
