Young Artist Scholarship Winner

Shinae Ra, a 14 year old cellist, started her cello studies with Hyunsil Kim at the age of 8 in Daejeon, South Korea, and moved to the United Sates at the age of 10. She had studied with Ken Ding and now studies with Emanuel Gruber who is a cello professor at East Carolina University. She was born to parents who were musicians, so she had many opportunities for music experiences. She was involved in the academy for gifted young musicians in Germany when she was 4, and in South Korea when she was 9 years old. From a very young age, she has tried many different instruments such as piano, violin, and also clarinet and flute, which are the instruments her parents majored in. But among all those instruments, she has chosen cello for her own instrument.

She attended the Triangle Youth Philharmonic Orchestra (TYP) in Raleigh, MYCO chamber orchestra in Chapel Hill, and Middle School Youth Orchestra (MSYO) in Fayetteville. She attended UNCG summer music camp in 2010, Summit Music Festival, which was held in New York in 2013 and 2014, and MYCO summer workshop in 2014.
