Join us at 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 22, in A. F. Siebert Chapel for the Philharmonic Concert.
The Carthage Philharmonic performs standard orchestral repertoire and offers opportunities for smaller chamber ensembles with faculty guidance, such as string ensembles and piano trios. Past repertoire has included works by such composers as Bach, Beethoven, Bizet, Copland, Holst, Purcell, and more. It is a dynamic ensemble which prides itself on its commitment to growth, excellence, and camaraderie between ensemble members to create a more connected sound.
The ensemble is conducted by Professor E. Edward Kawakami. In addition to his role as conductor, is the assistant professor of music and director of orchestral activities, as well as an active clinician, guest conductor, and adjudicator.
Prof. Kawakami has collaborated with award-winning musicians like Pulitzer prize winner Ellen Twillich and Grammy award-winning violinist Mark O’Connor.
Before coming to Carthage, Prof. Kawakami served as conductor the California State University, Northridge Symphony and Chamber Orchestras, as well as being employed as a conductor of various musicals, film soundtracks, and varied guest conducting positions around Southern California.
The Philharmonic Concert is free and open to the public.
