"It's an honor for me to be part of SMU and I would love to share my passion for music with everyone that feels the absence of concerts halls during this difficult times. I believe it's an opportunity to share it in more intimate setting, building a stronger relationship with the audience while commenting on the meaning and origin of each composition. Best wishes"
