Hanchi Shi China, 15, Junior

14-year-old Hanchi began playing the violin at four. Since being accepted to the Juilliard Pre-College Programme in 2014, she has been studying with Professor I-Hao Lee. Hanchi has performed as a soloist with the Lee University Orchestra and the Chinese New Music Orchestra in Beijing Concert Hall. She has also performed in solo recitals in Paul Hall and Wuhan Qintai Concert Hall. Hanchi attended the Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival from 2015-2017 and performed in the festival’s Emerging Artists Series.

“As a young aspiring violinist, participating in the Menuhin Competition is one of the greatest opportunities I could ever receive. Not only will I be able to perform in front of the most successful juries in the industry, but I will also be able to meet and perform alongside the most talented violinists of my age. Even as a Competition, the inspiring nature of the Menuhin Competition will enable me to learn and grow as a musician through its masterclasses and other unique programmes. I look forward to Geneva, the Menuhin Competition, and, most importantly, this once in a lifetime experience.”
