PHILHARMONIC ASSOCIATION INC
January 24, 2011
The Philharmonic Association inc. is a stellar resource for North Carolina youth seeking symphonic experience. The training provided local students provides for a wide range of abilities and experience. The level of talent and technical ability in the Philharmonic youth orchestras is very impressive. The Association pulls in all resources available to augment their students experience and education. As one of the Concertmasters of the North Carolina Symphony and an instructor of violin, I have been privileged to witness and help guide the development of the Philharmonic students. Each year as I preside over auditions and guide sectionals for the Philharmonic orchestras, I am respectfully impressed by the advancement in the ability of the students. This is due to the quality of training and the demands for excellence made of the students by the The Philharmonic Association. As a result, the Philharmonic Association, inc. has earned recognition as the preeminent source for developing musicians to experience and achieve excellence in symphonic education. This is an endeavor I am proud to participate in.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
auditions, sectionals, performances
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
- collaborate on specific audition excerpts to better show abilities at different levels suited to the specific level of orchestra.
-schedule sectionals earlier in the rehearsal schedule to address bowings and fingerings.
