Guido Sant'Anna Brazil, 15, Junior

Born in Brazil, Guido began his violin studies at the age of five with the help of his family, before studying with Marcia Uhlemann. He gave his orchestral solo debut aged seven, with the conductor Júlio Medaglia, and has since given solo recitals as well as orchestral and chamber music performances. He has been a participant of the Perlman Music Program since 2018, studying with numerous distinguished musicians. Since winning a prize at the Menuhin Competition Geneva 2018, Guido has enjoyed a number of opportunities. He studies with Elisa Fukuda and plays on an 1833 Iorio violin, kindly loaned by the Caris Foundation. 

“The Menuhin Competition will be a golden opportunity for growth and learning. The chance to work with different skilled musicians from around the world is truly incredible. This competition will inspire and drive me to learn and enhance my playing to create more beautiful music. I am looking forward to meeting all the talented musicians and the prominent jury and performing to such a great international audience.”
