“The Menuhin Competition is viewed by others as a well-known, prestigious violin competition and a lively festival celebrating music and the genius violinist, Yehudi Menuhin. The Menuhin Competition to me however, in addition to this description, is a wonderful opportunity to display my proficiency and endeavour. Over a period of time, much of my time and effort has been put into mastering this work of art, and the Menuhin Competition is the perfect showcase to exhibit my creation in.” (Elli Choi)
