Charles Hamlen (1943-2018) was an exceptional man, a beloved and respected figure in the world of classical music, and an unparalleled friend and mentor to us and to CSNY. Truly, without Charlie's loving support, there would be no CSNY. We are grateful to the Northlands Foundation for the enduring gift of two full scholarships in Charlie's honor and loving memory. Please visit the FACULTY page to read more about Charlie and his inspirational life's work.
