When we try to understand the people around us and get to know the amazing diversity that surrounds us here in KELOLAND, it’s easy to see what’s on the outside, but a lot harder to see what’s on the inside. But what if our eyes could see into the soul? That’s the question today’s guests seek to answer through music dance and poetry.

Yi-Chun Lin is the program director and violinist/violist for the Sioux Falls Chamber Music Collective. And Zach Van Harris JR is a Sioux Falls Chamber Music Collective Board Member.

They joined us today to give us a preview of their upcoming performance and talk about why it’s so important to promote inclusion through art.
