The Carmel Symphony Orchestra (CSO) proudly announces the winner of its 2017 and 37th Young Artists Competition. Sixteen-year old Renée Murphy is a homeschooled tenth grader and a 2016 CSO Young Artists Competition runner-up, who resides in Bloomington, Indiana.
“I am thrilled to win the CSO’s Young Artist Competition because this is going to be my very first time performing with an orchestra,” says Murphy. “It is my hope to be an ambassador for the harp and to encourage young children, and adults alike, to consider studying the harp. Harp is not perhaps very well known to most people, and I hope to introduce it to many people.”
