“Lord Yehudi Menuhin has always been a source of inspiration for me: His deep connection to music, his belief that music is present in and can touch every single living being. To be able to participate in the Menuhin competition is an honour, to have the chance to share my music and ideas in such a wide-reaching and influential musical event: I really hope to get to make many friendships that will last far beyond the duration of the competition, and to touch others with the music-making that will take place!” (Belle Ting)
