Ears, Eyes & Sound: Charles Washington Symphony Orchestra



The Charles Washington Symphony Orchestra — CWSO — got its start over a conversation between friends who thought the area needed a community orchestra. That was fall 2012. Today, Camilo Pérez-Mejía is the Music Director, while Andrea Diggs, Brian Ellsworth and Kim Krapf are the board members — president, vice president and secretary/treasurer, respectively. The orchestra rehearses and performs at schools and other venues around Jefferson County. “The community has been incredibly supportive since the beginning,” says Diggs, CWSO president and one of the friends in that conversation in the fall of 2012.
