After 52 Years with the Amarillo Symphony

Amarillo SymphonyMy wife has decided she will retire from the Amarillo Symphony her last concert is today 04/25/2015. One of the local Television stations was doing a story on the 90th anniversary of the Amarillo Symphony. They also had read the story that was in the Amarillo Glob news the other day about Charlotte retiring. So Mr. Larry Lemmon’s of the TV station called Charlotte and wanted to do an interview with her also. He came out to the house and shot this footage with her and her Cello. As you can tell I am very proud of this sweet woman and this should show that she is very committed to everything she does after all she has put up with me for almost 50 years.

  1. Happy retirement!

    If Charlotte has been with the symphony for 52 years, I saw her several times back in the mid-’70s to mid-’80s. I had several friends from Amarillo.

    I played violin with the symphonies in Corpus Christi, Houston, and Brazos County during my days.

    • Thank you for reading and your comment. Well you probably did then she has played 3rd chair for multiple years and of course for many churches here in Amarillo. Congrats also on your music accomplishments. She took a short leave of absent during the 68 and 69 year for she came out to where I was in the Navy. She did get to play for the Bremerton WA symphony while my ship was in dry dock there. Have a blessed day and up coming week. πŸ™‚ JIm
