Created 5 June 2018
In May, 2018 I received First Prize in the US Region for the Osaka International Music Competition.  I plan to represent the US in the international finals to be held in Osaka, Japan in October, 2018. Funds raised on this platform will be used to cover travel and hotel expenses for me (and one of my parents) as well as visa and performance fees.
I hope to reach my fundraising goal in advance of the August 10th application deadline.
I am very excited for this opportunity to perform and compete internationally and I am very grateful for your support!
