An Afternoon of Jazz - The Charles Overton Group

The sky is the limit for classical and jazz harpist Charles Overton, a twenty-three-year-old musician who hails from Richmond and attended Richmond Montessori and Westminster Academy. Before Overton embarked on a whirlwind path of specialized private and master classes, countless institute workshops and summer music festivals, he started with the Richmond Harp Institute, Richmond Symphony Youth Orchestra, the Richmond American Youth Harp Ensemble and the Richmond Academy of Music. Charles has traveled all over the world participating in both ensemble and solo performances in London, Tokyo, Milan, Luzern and Rome and has played America’s finest concert halls including Corson Hall in Interlochen, MI, Carnegie Hall and David Gefen Hall at Lincoln Center in New York, NY, and Symphony Hall in Boston, MA.

Charles stays busy with a jammed-packed appearance schedule performing classical, jazz and contemporary music with regular engagements with the Boston Symphony and his quartet Charles Overton Group. The Charles Overton Group recently released Convergence in 2017 which is available on iTunes, Spotify and by CD.
