AUSTIN, Texas — Announcing the Senior Finalists on Wednesday night, jury chairman Pamela Frank said, "I personally have never heard such great violin playing, for so many hours. What really amazed me is how different everybody was -- there were nine totally unique voices today." About 500 people attended the six-hour finals at Bates Recital Hall at the Butler School of Music at the University of Texas in Austin.

The Senior Division Finalists for the Menuhin Competition were announced Wednesday night in Austin. They are:
