Born in Genova, Italy in 1991, Caterina Bevegni is a harp player, harp teacher, leader/facilitatorand a founding member of The Odd7 Collective as well as Production Leader of Ciconia Consort, a string orchestra based in Den Haag. Caterina earned her “Classical Harp” Bachelors Diploma in 2014 at “Conservatorio Niccolò Paganini” where she was awarded with the European scholarship “Leonardo” for the project “WWM-Working With Music”, a prize granted by the European Commission, which allowed her to complete a six-month Internship at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in Den Haag (NL) in the harp class of Ernestine Stoop with Methodology for Music Education under Julia Stegeman. Due to the vibrant and stimultating environment, Caterina decided to stay in Den Haag, gaining acceptance into the “NAIP – New Audiences & Innovative Practice” European Masters Program, in September 2015. As harp performer, Caterina is an open-minded and curious player, cultivated by her many years experience of Contemporary Music repertoire – focusing on improvisation, live-electronics performances, collaborations with composers and experimentation of all possibilities on her chosen instrument. She has performed as part of the NOOS Ensemble (Italy), PYO-Palestine Youth Orchestra (Italy, Palestine, Jordan), GEO-Galata Electroacustic Orchestra (Italy), Jeune Orchestre International de Montecarlo and DUO Flauto & Arpa (Italy). Caterina has been trained to lead and teach different kinds of groups, from children to teenagers as well as people with dementia and vulnerable groups. In 2017, she worked in the Artistic Production of an intensive training-program for teachers of El Sistema Greece in Athens (supported by Impact Hub Athens) analysing and developing the organization of music lessons for children in refugee camps in the area surrounding Athens. Caterina is now collaborating with vibraphone player Fernan Mejuto Vazquez on the realisation of their original music workshop format “Around the world”, addressed to children and kids from different parts of the world but living in NL based upon their shared philosophy of working through Creative Music Making and Collaborative Composition Processes applied to any kind of group and community.
