Hello,

My name is Silvia and I am a co-founder of CrowdHelps. According to our terms of use, an individual must be over the age of 18 to be able to use our services. However, Anastasia Rizikov, a 14 year old girl, has grabbed my heart with her talent and modesty. I have known her for many years and I want to help her achieve her dreams.

Therefore, I decided to start a Fundraising Campaign in order to raise funds to help her produce her first CD album.

Having been to many of her performances, I can say with certainty that she not only has the talent, but also the passion. She's an incredible pianist, a musical prodigy, who plays from her soul.

Many of Anastasia‘s fans know that she loves to perform on stage, whether it is playing piano on her own, or with a Symphony Orchestra. She currently performs in various cities and countries, however it would mean a lot to her to be able to produce a full length CD album. In order to accomplish her dream, she needs our help.

Together we would be able to bring this joy to her and to those who would listen to her new CD as well.

The album will contain a variety of pieces that display her ability and the experience she has acquired throughout her career as a classical pianist.

ABOUT ANASTASIA

She was born in Toronto, Canada, began her studies at age five, and since then showed unparalleled dedication to both practice and performance. She received two consecutive annual scholarships from the Royal Conservatory of Music and studies with award-winning piano teacher Maia Spis at the Nadia Music Academy in Toronto.
