Review for Philharmonic Association Inc, Raleigh, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a high school clarinetist in the Triangle Youth Philharmonic. I do not have an orchestra at my school, but the Philharmonic Association has by far made up for that! I get the oppurtunity to meet and perform with other dedicated musicians. By having multiple orchestras, you are placed in the orchestra adequate for your playing ability. The orchestras above you inspire you to grow in your musicianship so that you can place into a more advanced ensemble. The Philharmonic Association provides wonderful repetoire for their orchestras that challenge us but are within our ability to perform. They also provide sectionals with actual members of the North Carolina Symphony! These musicians provide personal attention, kindly offering their expertise. The rehearsals are fun, but the icing on the cake is the oppurtunity to present our hard work to the public in Meymandi Concert Hall!

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

my own musical experiences, the experiences of others, and the orchestras as a whole. Performing in the PA's orchestras has greatly improved my technique and musicality on my instrument!

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

not change anything at this time. However, I wish that the Philharmonic Association would have the funding to build their own facilities.
