Charles Ogarro exhibit with visitors

CO exhibit with visitors

The conductor of the Charlotte Symphony is pictured here along with others who bought his works.  The exhibit was a collaboration with the Symphony since Charles listened to nothing but classical music while he was working. He attended the symphony concerts by standing outside the box office in his thrift store tux with a sign that read “senior citizen needs single seat”.  There were always no-shows or some party of symphony patrons  would give him their extra ticket in the Orchestra or Mezzanine sections of the house and he sat in the best seats.

  1. What a wonderful story…how lucky all of you were to share in his life!

  2. He sounds like a wonderful man. How fortunate you knew him.

  3. That’s a great idea for free tickets. I did that once, but I think I bought the ticket off them.

  4. That thought made me smile. 🙂 good for him!
