Alexandra Cooreman began the violin aged five at the Music Academy of Berchem-Sainte-Agatha, Brussels. Recent highlights include several concerts with L’Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie and the Christmas Concert at the Royal Palaceand performing at the Festival Classissimo in the Theatre Royal du Parc in Brussels. In 2013 she became Absolute Laureate of the “Kocian” Violin Competition, Czech Republic, the first Belgian to do so in its 55 years of existence and in 2014, she was awarded First Laureate Category A at the Breughel Music Competition. She currently studies at the Music Chapel Queen Elisabeth under Augustin Dumay and Tatiana Samouil.

I am so delighted I have been given the chance to take part in this prestigious music competition. It is an honour as well as a challenge for me to compete with other violinists from all over the world. Moreover, I have always been fascinated by the interpretations and the personality of Yehudi Menuhin and I am thankful that I was given the chance to live this adventure, which I am sure will help me grow as a musician. I am looking forward to be on stage offering my music to the audience. (Alexandra Cooreman)
