Juliette Roos was born into a musical family and started the violin aged 5. After attending the junior department of the Royal Academy of Music, she studied with Lutsia Ibragimova at the Yehudi Menuhin School. In 2012 she was awarded the Walter Todds bursary and reached the string final of BBC Young Musician of the Year. After graduating, she decided to continue her studies at HEMU Conservatoire Lausanne Site de Sion with Pavel Vernikov. In 2015 she was a prizewinner and awarded the Special Prize for the best interpretation of a virtuosic piece at the Kloster Schöntal Violin Competition.

“It is a great privilege to participate in the Menuhin competition in London, 2016. It means a lot to be part of such a prestigious competition founded by a truly inspirational musician. I am really looking forward to surrounding myself with wonderful violinists and I am sure I shall learn a great deal through this exciting experience. Thank you for the fabulous opportunity and I shall do my best to make the very most of it!” (Juliette Roos)
