Review for Philharmonic Association Inc, Raleigh, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I honestly don't know where we would be without the Philharmonic Association. My daughter is at a small private school that does not have a high school band. Yet, she thoroughly enjoys playing the flute and wanted to be part of some type of band/orchestra. Somewhat miraculously she auditioned and made the Triangle Youth Orchestra (TYO) in the Philharmonic Assoc. She absolutely loves everything about it. . . the director, the other kids, the music, everything. If it wasn't for this orchestra, she probably would not be playing the flute because of the school she attends. Yet, she has learned so much through TYO and has been exposed to quality music/musicians that she would otherwise not be around. TYO is a top-notch organization in every aspect and we are eternally grateful for it.

She is learning from gifted directors/NC Symphony volunteers who she otherwise would never know. She is around quality kids who are disciplined and learning to play their instrument with excellence. She is a more balanced and complete person. She does school, and softball, and tutors. . . and she plays in this orchestra!

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

I actually have no complaints, and I'm not a real easy-to-please person. I have nothing but gratitude for this organization.
