Help Micah attend Interlochen Arts Academy

We are excited to share that Micah has been accepted into the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy (Classical Performance Harp).  Along with this amazing opportunity comes the cost for attendance.   With these costs in mind, we are connecting with our village to ask for your support through this GoFundMe page.   Your generous donation will assist us with sending Micah to an enriching and challenging performing arts school to continue honing her skills as a harpist and also help to extend Micah’s passion for performing the musical art she has studied for the last seven years.

Since beginning harp lessons in the third grade, Micah has been blessed to have many unexpected opportunities  such as being involved in the Urban Youth Harp Ensemble, a fellow with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s Talent Development program and the principal harpist for the Emory Youth Symphony Orchestra.  Each of these wonderful experiences has set the foundation for what we hope will be her Interlochen journey.  Micah's passion for the arts can be seen in some of her most recent notable accomplishments which include being selected as a cast member and content developer for Season 7 of The Bridge (a talk and entertainment show produced by Dekalb County School District High School Students)and petitioning to play the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy in the 2020 DeKalb School of the Arts Nutcracker, where she collaborated with a fellow dancer to create a film of the Sugar Plum Fairy variation from the Nutcracker with Micah playing the harp.  Attending Interlochen would allow Micah more similar collaborations and also provide a larger harp community for her to thrive in.  

Micah’s artistic growth would not be possible without her audience of supporters. We are pleased to count you amongst her audience, and we hope that you will offer an encouraging round of applause by making a contribution today for her to continue her Harp studies at Interlochen Arts Academy.

A deposit of $2,300 is due on April 19th with the remainder of her $68,900  tuition ($23,000 after her scholarships) will be due in the fall. All additional funds will go towards Micah's Senior Year tuition cost.
