  • Harold & Charleen Wippler were cornerstones of the musical community in Denver for many decades as gifted violinists in both the Denver Symphony and Colorado Symphony Orchestras. As one of the longest-tenured musicians, Charleen's dedicated and inspiring career covered a span of 50 years. Harold served as concertmaster of the DSO for many years. He likewise touched countless lives as an outstanding teacher and mentor, and continued to do so well into his eighties.

    In honor of Harold and Charleen, the family has established a scholarship fund with the Denver Young Artists Orchestra, where many of Harold's students participated and enhanced their musical journeys. Both Harold and Charleen were advocates of musical opportunities, and Harold was also instrumental in starting the Denver Young Artists Orchestra.
