Everyone here knows Karam. He’s been a community member, a volunteer, and now an intern at our Hashemi community center. He sat down with us to share about a passion (and great talent) of his–music! Check out his story below, and listen to a few of his favorite songs. We hope they will bring some beauty into your day just like Karam brings into ours!

“As a violinist, I am drawn to music for its ability to communicate complex emotions and ideas through sound. The unique timbre and tonal range of the violin, as well as its versatility in a variety of musical genres, make it a particularly expressive instrument.

“Whether I am playing solo or collaborating with other musicians, music offers me a platform for creative self-expression and an opportunity to connect with audiences on a deeply emotional level.

“Through the beauty and power of music, I find a sense of fulfillment and purpose that enriches my life in profound ways.”
