Beautiful Music and the Best of Friends
For the Carmel Symphony Orchestra’s (CSO) Associate Concertmaster, Jesse Hawkins, it all began with a love for beautiful music and a best friend. One St. Patrick’s Day a few years back Jesse was a fill-in for his dear friend of 30 years, CSO Concertmaster, Larry Shapiro. After being so very inspired by the CSO family of musicians and nailing that performance, Artistic Director David Bowen offered him the position of CSO second chair, sitting next to his dear friend, Larry.
“It is an incredible honor and responsibility to introduce classical music to our children because it will shape and mold their heart and souls so that they grow up and become warm, caring, imaginative, and passionate individuals,” said Han. “It is my sincere hope that families who come to the Family Fun Concert will have an incredibly fun and entertaining afternoon and that everyone will walk away with their brighter hearts and wider smiles. Very possibly, we may also inspire a child to become the next Mozart or Yo-Yo Ma!”
The Carmel Symphony Orchestra (CSO) hosts its annual interactive family-style concert, Family Fun!, on March 26 at 3 p.m. at the Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, Ind. Serving as guest conductor will be former Carmel High School Music Department Chair, Soo Han.
