I am so grateful that I was able to attend Indiana University's Summer String Academy, a four-week camp where musicians from all over the world study and teach for the summer. I fell in love with this camp when I attended in the summer of 2013, so I was excited when I applied and was accepted again this year. I received two private lessons a week, and practiced both individually and with a quartet every day. Every night, students were able to take a break from practice to listen to chamber groups and famous soloists from all over the world perform. Spending a month at Indiana University provided me with resources to improve as a musician, experience living at a university, and meet new friends that I will always stay in touch with. Attending Summer String Academy was the highlight of my summer; now that I am home, I miss it so much and I hope that I can attend again next year! I want to sincerely thank the Park Ridge Cultural Arts Center for supporting young musicians like me. I truly appreciate this opportunity that I was given!
