Currently a student of Mr. I-Hao Lee at Juilliard, Caecilia has taken part in masterclasses with CheeYun Kim, Mark Kaplan and Sheryle Staples.
“Being able to participate in the 2018 Menuhin Competition is such a delight and honour and it is something that I’ve always dreamed about since I was young. This will be my first time ever visiting Europe and I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to share my music with a worldwide audience. I am looking forward to getting to know so many great musicians!”
