Atlanta Festival Academy

This summer, I had the honor of attending the first annual Atlanta Festival Academy. The festival academy was founded by Ms. Lin Wei, Ms. Amy Chang, and Mr. William Pu – who is now my teacher. This intensive is connected to the Menuhin violin competition, so I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Gordon Back, the artistic director of the contest and world-renowned pianist, and Chloe Chua, the 2018 winner. There were several other incredible professors, accompanists, and performers from all over the world, and it was incredible to get to work with and speak to all of them. I was part of an orchestra, and over the course of two weeks we prepared four pieces for the final performance. I also got two private violin lessons and a masterclass, both of which were incredible learning experiences. Below are the links to the pieces that we performed at the final concert. I am so excited for next year!
