I would like to thank PRCAC for providing me with another opportunity to spend my summer at music camp. This year, I attended Indiana University Summer String Academy, which I have also attended two prior summers. Since this year is my last summer before college auditions, I worked with university professors and IU music performance majors to prepare the music I plan to perform in my auditions. Aside from individual lessons and practice time, I also played with a fantastic chamber group and met new friends from the US, France, Argentina, Japan, and Hungary. My chamber quartet became a very close knit group and we even won the academy-wide Haydn competition. Another amazing experience was watching Joshua Bell in concert and meeting him afterwords, courtesy of the IU string academy. After spending another summer at IU I feel confident that I have improved my technique and will be able to practice more effectively at home.
Thank you so much for your generosity!
