I first became aware of the Philharmonic Association when I was searching for a beyond band experience for my young musician. We joined the PA 5 years ago, and I was very impressed with the experience my child was getting in the Triangle Youth Symphony. She moved up to the Triangle Youth Philharmonic as her abilities increased. My two younger children now play in the Triangle Youth Orchestra. I was very impressed with the organization, and since have held many various volunteer positions and now volunteer on the Board of Directors.

The experiences my children, and all our young musicians are getting through the mission of the Philharmonic Association are outstanding. They are exposed to great classical music, they have the challenge of learning their individual parts, they learn how to play as part of an ensemble, and they learn responsibility to be prepared for rehearsals, and to cooperate as part of a large group.

I am always amazed at how wonderful the children sound at their concerts. Sitting in the audience, watching my young performers on the big stage at Meymandi Concert Hall is a real thrill for me, and always sends shivers down my spine. The enjoyment my children get, the lessons they are learning, and the exposure to great works of classical music are invaluable.


The Great!

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

observing the dedication and passion of our Executive Director, Artistic Director, Conductors, and the participants we serve, and am honored to play a small part in this wonderful non-profit organization.

Ways to make it better...

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

like to see the PA have dedicated rehearsal space that meets the needs of our ensembles.
