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.

our behalf. David Brown, Conductor
