Join #ARCHETYBO and help us to buy

classic bows for our musicians!
Classic repertoire has always been at the heart of educational and artistic program of Theresia Youth Baroque Orchestra (TYBO). Classic bow is an essential tool in order to study this repertoire. Yet classic bows (lighter and more handy than the modern ones, longer and more carved than the baroque ones), are underused in academic education in conservatories and music schools. Young musicians usually don’t own one, choosing the baroque bow, technically and artistically not suitabile for music by Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven.

#ARCHETYBO’s aim is to buy classic bows: thanks to them it will be possible to develope in a effective way the study of classic repertoire. One classic bow costs around 2.000 Euros. TYBO is committed to buy four bows (2 for violins, 1 for violas, 1 for cellos) by the end of 2016. Bows will be made available to TYBO musicians during educational workshops and residencies, tours and concerts.

The goal of the fundraising is € 10,000: in addition to the purchase of four classic bows by the end of 2016, the donations will support the costs of this same campaign of crowdfunding on the website ULULE. If this target will be exceeded, one or more additional bows will be purchased, according to what has been actually raised.

#ARCHETYBO wishes to engage music lovers in a fundraising campaign in order to facilitate and accelerate the bows purchase, in the spirit of the ethical and cultural message of Theresia Project, that is entirely based on private donations, without the use of public funds.
