Reviews for Philharmonic Association Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

The Philharmonic Association has been a blessing to us for a few years now. We have a gifted musician that was needing a place to hone his talent and grow as a musician. The PA has provided technically challenging music, sectional teaching from NC symphony musicians, chamber group opportunities, solo performance opportunities and of course training as a symphonic musician. Also, the opportunity for our son to associate with other gifted musicians has given him an environment where he feels connected. He has peers in the PA that he can relate to. The value of training these young musicians receive far exceeds the dollar investment. Hugh Partridge does a great job preparing these young musicians for a future career in music if they so choose. If you've never been to one of their concerts, you need to'll be amazed!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the growth of my son as a musician and person.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I cannot think of a thing.
