“I feel very honoured to get the opportunity to participate in this great competition and festival. It has been a goal for me to enter the Menuhin Competition, and I feel very lucky an happy that I was accepted. I´m looking forward to meet a lot of great musicians and to perform and to compete. I´ve been in London once before, and I really enjoyed the city, so I´m also very excited about coming there again.” (Johan Dalene)
