The Symphony Orchestra of India’s SOI Music Academy celebrated the graduation ceremony of five of their academy students last Saturday (April 13th 2019). Among these was 15 year old Leah Divecha, who started learning the Violin at the tender age of six and was enrolled in the pilot project of the NCPA Western Classical Music Program when she was eight years old.
The SOI Academy Orchestra performed at the Tata Theatre with solo performances by each of the graduating students. Leah is the only Parsi to be a part of this group and has worked with dedication and hard work over the last nine years to earn her place amidst some of the best musical talent our country’s youth have to offer. Here’s what Leah has to say about her life and music.
