Clancy Steer received Cherubim's charity status on the very day that New York’s twin towers were struck. In the intervening 20 years the Trust has grown exponentially, and we now own or manage 35 instruments.
We are now seeking to celebrate our 20th Anniversary by appealing for a third concert harp. What better way to affirm the value of the arts and culture than to support young musicians?
ZoeMcNamee was one of our harp competition finalists in 2020 whose performance impressed the judges, but was hampered by
not having had a pedal harp to practise on. They urged us find her one – and that’s what we’re now doing! We have already raised over £15,000 of the £18,00 cost; and have just £3800 to reach our total.
Professor Gabriella Dall’Olio of Trinity-Laban Conservatoire says: ‘What a wonderful way to foster tomorrow’s star performers! I know young talented harpists who have been forced to give up because their families could not afford both tuition and the cost of a harp. Now with three instruments Cherubim can help bridge the gap between young hopeful and passionate professional.
