Guido Sant'Anna Brazil, 12, Junior

Guido began playing the violin aged five with the help of his family. He performed with an orchestra as soloist for the first time at the age of seven, and since then has performed numerous times as a soloist, most of them with the Filarmonica Bachiana Orchestra, under the direction of João Carlos Martins. He has also performed with Maestro Julio Medaglia, Erika Hindrikson, and Edson Beltrami. He is currently a student of Elisa Fukuda, sponsored by the Cultura Artística Institute.

“The Menuhin Competition has always been a reference point for talent and skill for me. Being chosen to participate in the Competition was really unbelievable, the best news I've ever received and it really surprised me. It will be a great honour to be among such talented violinists. This is my first international competition and I know it will be a wonderful experience, with lots of learning and fun. In addition, getting the opportunity to visit Switzerland only makes me even happier.”
