I am very excited that I was accepted to the Menuhin Competition. To me, the Menuhin Competition represents the highest mountain peak to conquer, and I can’t wait for this incredible music adventure. I’m looking forward to meeting young talented competitors from all over the world, making new friends and learning a lot during the Competition. I haven’t been to Richmond yet, but I’m so excited to explore this fantastic city. I’m sure it’s going to be one of the most unforgettable experiences I will ever have.
