When Katie Nam began walking onto the field at Yankee Stadium Wednesday, a few of her classmates yelled “Let’s go, Katie!”

Nam, who graduated from Andover High School in 2019 and from New York University with a bachelor’s degree in music on Wednesday, kicked off NYU’s 2023 commencement with a pitch-perfect performance of the National Anthem:

Nam is a familiar local face to anyone who caught her performances in student productions at Andover High School, including The Music Man and the Andover Cabaret. You can watch some of Nam’s performances while she was a student at AHS on YouTube.

Nam is heading to Indiana University for a master’s in music. She said in a Facebook post she was “honored and excited” to be singing the anthem at the opening of the Wednesday’s ceremony.
