Describe your Role with the CSO Education Intern.
 
(CSO Staff Note: Charles has been involved with numerous projects thus far in his internship but the largest has been designing and building the Teachers Guide for our Education concerts on April 2, 2014. This is the first time the Guide has been entirely online (thanks to our newly designed website!) and we couldn't be more pleased with the results of Charles' hard work. The response from the Teachers has been overwhelmingly positive!)
 
Where are you studying? I'm a senior at Winthrop University, majoring in Music Composition with a Business minor. I will graduate in May 2014.
 
What are your plans after graduation? Apply to NYU Steinhardt's Masters program in Film music at the end of 2014. In the meantime, work on projects already lined up around the Charlotte area and at Winthrop University.  
 
What would you eventually like to do? Work with interactive media, perhaps as a Music Producer or in the Film Industry as a Film Composer.
 
What instruments do/have you played? Several Bass, Piano and Trumpet. I played trumpet in marching band in High School.
 
What's your favorite part of volunteering with the CSO? Engaging with musicians and regularly attending the concerts. It was really enjoyable to meet composer Dan Locklair and join the Recital Seminar students at Northwest School of the Arts in meeting him as well.
