Stefania Scapin

Harpist born in Padua (Italy) in 1992, Stefania begins the study of the harp at the age of eight years and after long years of study and sacrifices to achieve the stated goals is now entering into the world of work as a professional musician.

She graduated with full marks, distinction and honours in Harp Solo Performance at the Conservatory of Music in Udine and studied abroad at the Royal Academy of Music in London and at the Universität für darstellende Kunst in Vienna.

She performs mainly as a soloist but also with chamber music ensembles and orchestras. She also teaches music and harp in several schools in Florence, the city where she now lives.

She recently recorded her first music album with Andrea Manco, First Flute of the Orchestra of the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, focused on the French Chansons by Debussy, Faurè and Ravel.

She has now reached a turning point in her career as a harpist and needs to change her instrument, to buy a new harp!

A harp for Stefania

Why a fundraising campaing

Hello everyone,

I decided to launch this fundraising campaign as I reached a turning point in my career as a harpist and I need to change my instrument, to buy a new harp. The instrument with which I have been studying and working for years is a “student harp” – also quite old- and is no longer able to sustain the level of my performances and my musical research. The instrument I would like to buy costs around 27,000 euros, a very demanding sum for an artist at the beginning of his career.
For this reason I ask for the help of the people who are reading these words, with the aim of reaching about the half of this amount, which would already be an enormous and precious help for me.

I really thank everyone who will put even a small brick to build this great dream!

I am grateful to Life, every day, for the possibilities it gives me, for the people it makes me meet and to instill in me the necessary willpower, despite the daily adversities, to remain firm and strong in this bright and enriching road that is Music.

Heartfelt thanks!
