CYA Piano Appeal

Created by
College Year in Athens
Attica, Greece

Project overview

This appeal is to raise money to buy a piano for College Year in Athens.

Description

Help us get a piano for CYA!

Piano notes flowing into a melody and joining with student laughter or the strumming of a guitar or playing of a flute – all were a loved feature of CYA student get-togethers. Gathered around the piano, one would start singing, another would join in, and through the notes unforgettable memories were made.  Unfortunately, for over a decade now, there have been no melodious piano notes heard at CYA since the school piano fell into an irreparable condition and there has been no funding for a new piano.

So we are launching a special CYA Piano Appeal to raise $8,000 in order to buy a new piano and fill our student center with the sounds of music again.

The piano will be used to stage musical events and talent shows, to provide a place for CYA students to practice piano (and many do request a convenient place to do so), and to host recitals by students, renowned Greek piano players, and others.

Help CYA give new generations the opportunity to create unforgettable memories again!
