YOUNG--Shirley. The Tianjin Juilliard community is deeply saddened by the death of our great friend Shirley Young, an inaugural member of the Tianjin Juilliard School Advisory Council. A person of extraordinary intellect, determination and vision, she had an enormously positive impact on Sino-American relations for decades. She was particularly successful in using the arts to bring China and America together. We send our condolences to her family members and her many friends.
