“It’s an honour to be part of the Menuhin Competition and I am very excited to experience valuable and positive encounters with new friends and musicians in Geneva, a seamless blend of modern and classical settings. To me, this is a wonderful opportunity to share music and deeply connect with the world. Music is a way to express your inner feelings with sincerity and true emotions through a universal language that everyone understands, and the Menuhin Competition is providing me the chance to perform on a worldwide platform. I can’t wait to see everyone in Geneva!”
