Hello, and thank you very much for your interest in our project!

Fingertips ASBL is a non-profit organisation based in Luxembourg. Launched in 2012, the Fingertips initiative has been working to promote high-quality art and support talented musicians from across Europe by organising charity events in Luxembourg. 

We need your help to realise our next event in September: a full evening recital featuring chamber music works by Franz Schubert and Dmitri Schostakovich on the 28th September at the Philharmonie, Luxembourg's premier classical music venue. 

With the collaboration of Caritas Luxembourg, the donations collected at this event will go towards making a difference for the homeless people in Luxembourg, not only by providing them with shelter and nourishment, but also by encouraging them to engage in sports and arts, thereby helping them deal with the stress and anxiety of being homeless and re-integrate into society.

Performing at this event will be the Ivan trio - Frans van Schoonhoven (violin) from the Netherlands, Malena Pflock (cello) from Germany and Carla Fernandez Boix (piano) from Spain - as well as the Petit grand piano duo - featuring pianists Emily Hooker from England and (Fingertips co-founder) Chiahu Lee from Luxembourg. 

The required budget has been estimated to be €4000. Your contribution will cover the venue and instrument hire, which amount to €2200. Should the project receive more funds than that, this funding will be used to cover other costs, namely:

  • travel and accommodation expenses for the artists (€1350)
  • marketing costs (€150)
In the event that we should cross the €4000 line, we will be introducing further stretch goals.

Thank you for supporting our project; we hope to see you at the concert!

Risks and challenges

Having already organised several successful charity concerts in the past few years, we are confident that everything is in place for the event. In other words: the venue has been booked, the artists are on-board, the marketing material has been designed and is ready to be printed.

Nevertheless, rest assured that should any issues come up, we will be in contact with all our backers, either here on the Kickstarter website or on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/projectfingertips).
