In 2018 Si-Yo Music Society Foundation proudly announced the inaugural Sau-Wing and Jean L. Lam Award, in honor of two of its original founders. The Lams generously supported the next generation of musicians. This award honors those who strive to educate, inspire, and support the next generation of musicians from all backgrounds.


The award went to New Jersey City University's Caroline L. Guarini Department of Music, Dance and Theatre for its extraordinary contributions to “inspiring a global community with classical music;" its students and alumni performed.


"The Department exemplifies the spirit and purpose of the Foundation’s founders with its dedication to the highest standards of artistic excellence,” said Maestro Cho-Liang Lin, chair of the event's honorary committee.


​Si-Yo Chairwoman and President Eva Lerner-Lam agreed. “The Department serves a diverse student population at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, contributing in a truly meaningful way to the educational, intellectual, cultural and socio-economic environment of the surrounding urban region and beyond,” she said.
