Review for Philharmonic Association Inc, Raleigh, NC, USA
My daughter is now in her 3rd year with the orchestra. Since the arts are often the first thing that schools cut from their curriculum, it was her first opportunity to participate in ANY orchestra. And it's been a remarkable experience for her! She loves playing with so many different instruments in a large group of kids. It was the first time she had ever seen some of the instruments! I've watched her grow in skill and self-confidence over the past few years. I don't think she would have grown as much without the Philharmonic Association.
As a parent volunteer, I have enjoyed getting to know the students, their families, other parent volunteers, board members and the artistic staff. The Philharmonic Association is a well-run organization. I have found that the people involved have a passion for music and the desire to share it with the children in our community.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
It has significantly enriched my daughter's life. She has grown as a musician and matured as a young lady. She is more self-confident and much more comfortable playing in an ensemble. I am looking forward to her continuing through high school (she is now in 8th grade).
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
The Philharmonic Association does not have it's own facility so the students must rehearse in borrowed space. It would be nice for the PA to have its own rehearsal and performance space. I would also like to see more performances in the community by all levels of the orchestra. I wish more people in the community knew about this wonderful program.
