Menuhin Competition Geneva 2018 Documentary

The Menuhin Competition is the world’s leading international competition for young violinists, held every two years in a different world city, most recently in Geneva from 12-22 April 2018. Prior to the Menuhin Competition Geneva 2018, the Competition was held in London in 2016 to celebrate the Menuhin centenary, Austin, Texas in 2014, Beijing in 2012 and Oslo in 2010. It attracts hundreds of entries from all corners of the globe, choosing only 44 of the world’s very best young violinists to participate. The Competition discovers, encourages and nurtures these exceptionally talented young musicians to develop into the next generation of great artists.

My wish is, some time in the future we will have the young violinists from our school participate in this competition.

Elton John Carpool Karaoke with James Cordon

I think these Carpool Karaokes are brilliant and they are a very creative idea of the talented James Cordon. One of the best Carpool Karaoke of James Corden that I like amongst all of his is this one with Elton John. James Corden asks Elton John to help him navigate Los Angeles on a rainy day while the two sing some of his songs, including a Lion King classic and “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me.”
Not to mention that I like his Late Late Shows.
