What’s in your bag, Timothy Chooi?

As a child, he dreamed of becoming a pilot. For hours, he would stand with his father on the lookout platform of the airport in his hometown of ­Victoria in Canada. “Watching planes come in to land just fascinated me,” Chooi, now 25, ­recalls. One day, he was given a violin, and from that day forward, never wanted to stop playing. The ­acclaimed violinist will be performing in Germany, Belgium, Austria and Canada in October. Lufthansa Magazin peeked into his bag at Frankfurt Airport.
