The Aurora Music Festival is an internationally recognised festival with a history spanning 14 years. I have been fortunate enough to be selected as one of a handful of participants to attend this year's Aurora Music Festival and Masterclass Series. The Festival will provide an opportunity for me to play in an orchestra lead by internationally renowned conductor Jukka-Pekka Sarasate, and have lessons with internationally acclaimed violinists including: Mihaela Martin, Esther Haffner and Alissa Margulis.
Attending the Aurora Music Festival would be extremely beneficial for my development as violinist and teacher. The opportunity to engage with internationally renowned musicians and teachers will allow me to establish connections which will assist in my goal of studying abroad. The experience will also allow me to develop my skills and give me a new perspective which will help me tremendously in my role as a teacher.
The funds will be used for travel costs, accommodation and the course fees.
