Dear all, my name is Leana Nikolov. I am violinist from Serbia. I finished Bachelor studies in Belgrade and I have won over the 20 first prices in Serbia and international. During my Bachelor studies I worked to support myself. Currently I am a master student in Graz, Austria in University of Music and Performing Arts Graz.
Before this situation with global pandemic, I have passed the audition for New Symphonic- Orchestra in Vienna. The audition went behind the courtains and there was a lot of great musicians from all over the world but they chose me :) My parents is support me but its not enough, considering income in Serbia is very low.
I am looking for financial support to move and live in Vienna from October this year. Whole my life I have been waiting for this kind opportunity to play and performed in Vienna.
I have a problem considering that Serbia is not EU so Austrian visa regulations are very strict for us. To get my visa, I need to show them that I will have sufficient amount of money to cover housing and living cost.
If I could reach the gold I would be able to finished my Master studies and to play in Symphonic Orchestra!
Your support is greatly appreciated.
I would be very grateful and I will fulfill my dream.
I hope that you will see my video from few years ago with Symphonic orchestra from Serbia.
Thank you in advance!
