“For me, Menuhin is not only the name of an outstanding violinist, but also represents passion, love and faith for music. I was so excited when I was notified that I had been accepted to this competition. It is my great honour to be part of the Menuhin Competition. This is not only a competition but also a music festival which attracts lots of brilliant musicians and talented contestants who all have epic passion for music. I am so looking forward to this precious opportunity of learning from the music masters and sharing experience with the other contestants.”
