Israeli harpist Inbar Varnia is the first recipient of a new music scholarship awarded by the Rachel Machkevitch Foundation.

In a ceremony held last week in London the 24-year-old musician was given a grant worth $50,000 that will allow her to study towards an MA at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

“We’re happy to be able to help Israeli harpist Inbal Varnia develop her abilities in what she already does so well,” said Ella Machkevtich, the chairman of the foundation created by Jewish Kazakhstani billionaire Alexander Machkevtich. “We wish her well in her career.”
