Carmel Symphony Orchestra concert features competition winner


The Carmel Symphony Orchestra will present the 2020-21 “Hope Renewed” season’s second Masterwork series at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 14 at the Palladium at The Center for The Performing Arts.          

The performance will feature “Beethoven Symphony No. 1 in C Major,” “Mozart Violin Concerto No. 3 in G Major” and Rossini’s “The Barber of Seville Overture.” The concert will feature Cooper Olsen, the CSO’s 2019 Young Artists Competition winner.

CSO sponsors the annual Young Artists Competition, a unique and prestigious concerto competition allowing Indiana student musicians the opportunity to compete with their peers at the highest level of artistic excellence and have the experience of performing in the Palladium.

Olsen was a 14-year-old when he won the CSO competition. A freshman at Bloomington North High School, he won the Young Artists Competition with a performance of “Saint-Saens Violin Concerto No. 3, 3rd Movement,” and studies with Mimi Zweig, professor of music at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music.

Along with a restricted capacity due to social distancing, the CSO will offer a livestreaming option for the November concert.

“Having the capability to livestream our concerts allows us to bring music to people who are unable to be in the hall with us,” CSO Artistic Director Janna Hymes said. “With limited seating and some of our patrons’ concerns about being out in crowds, we believe this is the perfect solution to bring the beauty of music directly to everyone.”

Single tickets for the “Hope Renewed” Masterworks series concerts are on sale for livestream and in-person options. For more, visit
