This Friday’s Creative Mornings talk is on Language, which, as fellow word lovers, we’re totally stoked about. The speaker will be Maestro Ken Lam, who was recently named as music director of the Charleston Symphony Orchestra. Lam has led multiple critically acclaimed productions at Spoleto, Lincoln Center Festival, and the Luminato Festival in Toronto.

Fun fact: Lam was a finance attorney for 10 years before becoming a conductor. Sign up now for tickets for Friday’s 8 a.m. talk at Launch Pad, Meeting Street’s co-working space.
