Cynthia Maya Bal
Scholar 2009 -2013
“In playing piano, I re-discover myself as well as those who have composed the music. That’s why music is infinite, and never boring. But music is also constant work, because that’s the only way that I am able to develop a greater passion, and freely express what I hear inside and how I feel.” — Cynthia
