Ken Lam, Music Director of the Charleston Symphony Orchestra

It may go without saying that Ken Lam, music director of the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, is well-versed in matters relating to the study and performance of some of the world's greatest works of music--several conducting awards and time spent learning from maestros like Leonard Slatkin are proof enough of that. What might be more surprising is that his resume also includes an economics degree from Cambridge and a decade of experience in law.

In this interview that aired Friday, March 17, Bradley Fuller shares highlights from a conversation with Ken about his beginnings in music, the time he spent in other fields (and how they relate to his current position), and the orchestra's upcoming season finale concerts on April 21-22.
