Perolene George Thani, an 11 year old Syrian girl, is the youngest student at the Vienna University for Music and Performing Arts.

The young musician has been studying music at Vienna's most important music school, and took part in the "Golden Note" contest, last March. She has won first place multiple times in her young career.

Perolene toured Prague, Bulgaria, and Germany, sharing her phenomenal violin playing with the world, and lead an orchestra in Austria. Her teachers praise her “unique fingers” that glide with agility as she plays her violin.

Her talent attracted the attention of leading music professors from the prestigious Vienna University, who made sure she takes the entrance exam, even at her very young age.

Perolene got the first place in the university’s entrance exam on October 1, 2018, to become the youngest student to enrol at the university.

Perolene, who lives with her family in Austria, said in an interview with SANA: “My achievements are not a surprise. I am Syrian, and I dedicate my success to my beloved Syria.”
