Review for Philharmonic Association Inc, Raleigh, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am an alumnus of the Triangle Youth Symphony (98-02) and the Triangle Youth Philharmonic (02-04). When I first started playing the violin, I did not have the opportunity to play in an orchestra because my middle school did not have a strings program (the case for many students in the Triangle area). The PA was the only place I could play the violin with other students, and I absolutely loved it. It gave me a place to play challenging symphonic music, a chance to make friends from other schools, and taught me how to be a consistent member of an ensemble. I am currently beginning my musical career as a musician in a professional orchestra, and I find myself coming back to the many lessons (both musical and personal) that I learned as a student in the PA. I will always be grateful that I had the opportunity to be a musician in this organization, and look forward to hearing more about its growth and success!

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

the way it shaped my life as a musician.

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

find a building they can call their own.
