Zoja Đorđević is an extraordinary young harpist from Belgrade. Dedicated and hardworking, Zoja is the holder of Vuk’s diploma in two high schools. In addition, she is the Student of The Generation in high music school Stanković. This summer, Zoja is heading for Oslo, Norway, to study at The Norwegian Academy of Music in the class of famous harpist and professor Ms Isabelle Perrin. Multikultivator, the organisation that has been systematically providing support and extraordinary opportunities for the professional development of young musicians from Serbia for more than 12 years, has launched a fundraiser to help Zoja’s dreams come true.
The people at Multikultivator believe that music impacts people positively. That’s why they organise concerts and festivals to contribute to making the world a better place. For a lasting impact, they are actively involved in shaping new generations of musicians through their platform for music education simply called “Multiversity.”
Multikultivator is Berklee Global Partner for Serbia and neighbouring countries. Their latest action was launched to raise funds to support young harpist Zoja Đorđević studies at The Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo, Norway, in the class of renowned professor Ms Isabelle Perrin.
Zoja was born on 22nd November 2002 in Belgrade, to a family in which music has always played a significant role. During the 10 years of her musical education, Zoja was awarded at numerous competitions in Serbia and abroad, both as a soloist and chamber ensemble member. Her first solo concert came at the age of 14 in the Great Hall of the Belgrade Youth Centre, playing for her first instrument.
In addition to her regular musical education, Zoja didn’t miss a single opportunity for additional professional training with professionals from Serbia and abroad.
Zoja loves to perform. On stage, she feels inspired and free. Independently, with chamber ensembles or a band, she has performed at the Great Hall of Kolarac Endowment, The Residence of Princess Ljubica, the Great Hall of the Belgrade Youth Centre, Belgrade Cultural Centre Gallery, Mikser Festival, Super Dot, The Museum of Science and Technology, Gallery Progress, House of King Peter. In June 2021, Zoja performed at the UK Ambassadorial Residence in Belgrade on the occasion of the official celebration of the birthday of Queen Elizabeth II.
Harp students from around the world apply every year to the class of Professor Isabelle Perrin at The Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo. Zoja is one of three students admitted to her class in 2022.
This fundraiser aims to raise €15,000.00 per year of study. This amount includes living expenses, student visas and administrative expenses at the academy on an annual basis, while education itself is free.
