“I’m very excited to participate Menuhin Competition in London 2016. It means a lot to me because it will be held in London (where he spent most of his performing career) and celebrate the centenary of Yehudi Menuhin’s birth. It’s an honor to be one of the competitors of this competition. I’m looking forward to playing for great artists and meeting new musicians.” (Youjin Lee)
