Promote Cross-cultural Collaboration of Music Internationally
I was so honoured to have joined 2020’s Musicus Society Ensemble Training, it has been an unforgettable journey. I have enjoyed every single little detail, from the training all the way to the performance, but playing onstage was very enjoyable and fun. I would definitely join again given the chance!
