Refusing to settle in their comfort, Audrey and Emily brought music for all kids from all backgrounds.
Focused on providing free musical education for underprivileged children in Indonesia, Be Sharp is an organization founded in 2018 by Audrey Adiwana of Sekolah Pelita Harapan (SPH) Kemang Village and her friend, Emily Kumalaputra. The idea came about from a single conversation between the 12th graders and their parents at Maxx Coffee.
“We realized our privilege to learn musical instruments and we wanted to give the same opportunity to children who are less fortunate. With this, Be Sharp provides everything the students need to learn their musical instruments, from the instruments to the teachers and curriculum,” said Audrey.
On August 20th, Be Sharp hosted their 3rd annual fundraising concert at the modern & contemporary art museum, Museum Macan, after a two-year pause due to COVID-19. This event was attended by approximately 300 guests. In celebrating the cause behind the concert, honorary guests such as Iskandar Widjaja, Pepita Salim, and Stephanie Onggowinoto also presented the guests with beautiful performances.
