About Richie Hawley:
Originally from Los Angeles, Mr. Hawley began his clarinet studies with Yehuda Gilad at the Colburn School of Performing Arts at the age 9. He made his orchestral solo debut at age 13, performing Weber with the Los Angeles Philharmonic as the winner of its student stars competition. At age 14 he performed Rossini's Introduction, Theme and Variations on one of the New York Philharmonic's young person's subscription concerts as a winner of the Philharmonic's national talent search competition. And while a student of Donald Montanaro at the Curtis Institute of Music, Mr. Hawley appeared as a soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Mr. Hawley graduated from Curtis in 1992.
Mr. Hawley was appointed Principal Clarinet of the CSO in 1994 at the age of 23, only two years after graduating from the Curtis Institute of Music. He has since enjoyed a rewarding and multifaceted career as an orchestral clarinetist, recitalist, chamber musician, teacher and clinician.
About the Colburn Chamber Music Society:
Celebrate the Colburn Conservatory of Music’s 10th Anniversary with this unique chamber music series. Colburn Conservatory musicians and faculty perform with international guest artists.
Seating begins approximately 30 minutes prior to the concert. In consideration of our artists and patrons in the hall, late seating will take place at the discretion of management. Certain programs are performed without intermission; therefore, no late seating can be offered at those concerts.
As a courtesy to the musicians and your fellow patrons, please turn off all pagers, mobile phones, watch alarms, or other electronic devices prior to the concert, and refrain from making noise (talking, coughing, unwrapping candy) during the performance. Everyone in your party, regardless of age, must be able to sit quietly through a 2 hour concert without disturbing other patrons or the artists. Ushers will ask parents whose children are noisy or uncomfortable to take them outside of the hall. If there is repeated disruption, The Colburn School reserves the right to revoke admission and refund your ticket price.
