Julie Yu guest conducts performance for 9/11 commemoration at Carnegie Hall

Submitted by Blakely Bunning

Julie Yu, associate professor of music, was a guest conductor Oct. 8 at the National Fall Sing event on the Perelman Stage in the Stern Auditorium of Carnegie Hall in New York City.

The National Fall Sing featured two honor choirs comprised of high school students from across the nation. Two survivors of the 9/11 attacks — Tony Rose, Pentagon, and Stanley Praimnath, World Trade Center South Tower — were guest speakers. The National Fall Sing commemorates and honors those affected by the events of Sept. 11, 2001.

The School of Music, Theatre, and Dance is part of the College of Arts and Sciences. The school annually gives more than $500,000 in undergraduate scholarships and graduate scholarships and assistantships. To learn more about the School of Music Theatre, and Dance at K-State, visit its website.
