Subway Star Rises To New Heights
Yut Chia is the band leader of Yut and The Hot Four, an up and coming string quartet and percussion group in New York City. As a child, Yut always had an interest in music, but never picked up a violin until the age of 12. With help from his mentor Gregory Singer, Yut learned everything he needed to know about the violin and string instruments. His undying passion for sharing his music has brought him all over the world, and also secured him a spot with Music Under New York, a well-known organization that highlights the city's best musicians by allowing them to compete for the most coveted subway stations in New York (to see that video, click here.) We stopped by Gregory Singer's Fine Violin Shop in the Upper West Side to catch up with Yut and learn more about his love for modern music.
