A Lesson for Society from CheHo Lam

Nihar Suthar interviewed violinist CheHo Lam on Incito tonight. As usual, there was some very interesting discussion. CheHo and his partner, Tony Zito, are aiming to change the entire music experience by bringing musicians into more intimate settings…like your own house! Imagine how this intimate environment could potentially impact art and even other fields. You would no longer go to a concert without having the chance to interact with the artist. Give and take relationships would no longer exist. An artist would come directly to your house and you could interact with him or her in a small audience.

In order to ultimately build up the courage to take action and change the face of music, CheHo said he had to adapt and really expand the boundaries as much as he could. He had to make human connections. This is a great lesson for society. Ignore the distractions, make genuine human connections, adapt, and expand the boundaries as much as possible. CheHo and Dr. Zito will undoubtedly leave a phenomenal mark on society.


CheHo Lam is a talented violinist, and performed at the second Presidential Inaugural Luncheon for President Obama in Washington DC.
