“I’m very excited to participate the Menuhin Competition. The Competition will be a very good opportunity for study and growth. I will have a chance to meet some excellent competitors from all over the world. We can talk about our understanding of music and exchange experiences with each other. I will also have the rare chance to meet some wonderful musicians and attend concerts and masterclasses, and I will have the chance to have face to face lessons with wonderful musicians. It will be a great experience for me! I’m looking forward to the Menuhin Competition so much!”
