Grammy Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell will pay tribute to IMG Artists co founder - Charles Hamlen, the late classical music manager who helped propel his career, in an intimate concert October 1. The performance will take place in the Tribeca loft of Simon Yates and Kevin Roon, with proceeds going to Classical Action: Performing Arts Against AIDS. Hamlen, who died from leukemia August 1 at the age of 75, founded the organization in 1993-five years after losing his partner, Carlos Flor, to AIDS. It subsequently became a program of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS in 1997.    photos: Henry McGee, Steve J. Sherman
