                                                           MANUAL GRAD PLAYS AT CARNEGIE HALL
     Eui Choi, valedictorian of Manual's Class of 2001, was featured in the June 29th issue of the Courier-Journal. Catherine Murrell wrote a story about Choi prevailing through three rounds of the Russian-American Music Association's Young Virtuosos at Carnegie Hall 2001 contest, competing against performers from across the country. This success won Choi the opportunity to play at Carnegie Hall in New York this past May. For his debut, he played Liszt's "Mazeppa."
     Choi has been studying piano since age 10, but his career goals lie elsewhere; when he attends Harvard University this fall, he is not even sure he will pursue music. He plans to concentrate on developing his knowledge of other fields. "Math and sciences are what I'm good at, so I was thinking economics and maybe bioengineering," he told Ms. Murrell.

 Due to the generosity of many alumni and other friends in the Louisville area, the Youth Performing Arts School/duPont Manual Concert Choir had a terrific adventure singing at the Presidential Inauguration on Jan. 20.   Thank you for all your help and support on our behalf.   David Brown, Conductor
