Not only is she masterful at her craft and stunning to look at, but Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti happens to be just 25-years-old. Even so, she embodies a finesse and wisdom in her performances that defy her age, proving that her long list of accolades are not without merit. Benedetti is an honored musician in the UK and her celebrated reputation has taken her to the famed concert halls of Buenos Aires, Lima, Rio de Janeiro, and Montevideo, to name a few, as she is quickly gaining notoriety worldwide for her unique skill set.
