During the 2007-08 season, Charles was invited to be guest principal oboe with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra during its USA tour with Pinchas Zukerman conducting. Charles Hamann's solo appearances include the Lincoln Symphony Orchestra, Ottawa's Thirteen Strings ensemble, the Alberta Baroque Ensemble, and Les Violons du Roy under Bernard Labadie.
