[Lynn J. Yen
 

 
    

"Imagination is more important than knowledge." This is part of a quote from Albert Einstein, one of the greatest scientists in history.

 

In order to nurture and develop our imagination, many argue and believe that music of thinkers such as Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and Schumann as well as many others, is the natural medium for developing the minds of young people, from the earliest years, through their late teens and twenties.

 

Lynn J. Yen is definitely one of the strong believers. As the Founder and Executive Director of the Foundation for the Revival of Classical Culture, Lynn Yen and her partners' mission is to revive the study and practice of the Classical principle in music and science, especially among the young.

 

In the past three years, they utilized concerts, lectures, and co-participatory performance, to return music to its proper province as a practice -not a "spectator sport"-involving hundreds of thousands in the United States.

 

Lynn is bringing her ideas to China now. Voices From Other Lands found her, and managed to have had a conversation on her mission to revive the classical culture before she left Beijing. 

 

Prior to her full time dedication to the revival of classical culture, Lynn Yen studied business, and worked in the financing sector in the United States. The US financial crisis made her realized what she had been working and achieved were not fulfilling and rewarding to her.  She eventually decided to act in order to realize her love for, and ability to contribute to a "higher calling".

 

In 2010, she began the groundwork for what led to the formation of the Foundation for the Revival of Classical Culture. After three years running the organization, she decided to do more and to build a cross ocean bridge between China and the United States.
