Hello dear friends!
Unfortunately, something very bad happened to me not so long ago. As most of you may know already, my flute was stolen in the metro of Kiev, only some few hours before my performance with the Ukho ensemble.
I can’t describe enough how devastating this experience was. The cold way it happened left me empty and wondering..! But I need to continue and I will not stop performing. I am currently playing on loan flutes, yet this can only be a temporary solution. I really need to obtain my own new instrument!
And this is where I would like to ask for your help. I know these are difficult and trying times for many people, but even a small amount like 5$ can help a lot!
This is my first crowdfunding and I really hoped it was under more pleasant conditions. But money don’t come easy at this time of my life and a new – or even used – professional flute is a very expensive instrument. And it needs to be good. At least as good as the one stolen from me and however better I can get. And that is why I set the goal of the fundraiser to 5000$, since this gets us close to the price of a good flute. A good professional musician can produce good sound from almost every instrument but after a certain point, even a professional cannot go beyond the limitations of his/her equipment.
I really hope we can get there!
Thank you all!
Below is a small Bio for people that came across my crowdfunding but don’t know me so far:
My name is Inna Vorobets and I am a professional flutist, specializing in both classical and contemporary repertoire. I am originally from Ukraine, where I graduated from the Lviv National Academy of Music, and I am principal flutist of the Ukho-ensemble Kiev. Currently I am studying, under scholarship, for a Master’s degree focusing on contemporary music at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, where I also have the privilege of playing with the ensemble Meitar. I am intensively engaging in multiple opportunities to both further my knowledge and mastery of music, as well as my career as a full time professional musician! For music is my life..! It is how I see myself in the world as I go in this long, beautiful journey of self-discovery!
