Our ever-popular annual event is coming up on February 15, 4:30 - 8:30 pm.

Concert Sponsors Make Free Tickets Possible

|

The Philharmonic Association wants young people to know about the wonderful world of great classical music! This season, we began offering free tickets to young people through 12th grade, and lowered all our other ticket prices. Performing in the region's premiere hall purposely built for a symphony orchestra, Meymandi Concert Hall, is quite expensive with our concerts costing an average of $3,500 each. We are grateful for Concert Sponsors, such as Cary Endocrine and Diabetes Center, that sponsored the Triangle Youth Philharmonic Fall Concert. Any business or person wishing to foster the future of great music with a sponsorship is

What Makes Music, Music?

The series began with the Triangle Youth Philharmonic String Quartet in December and the Triangle Youth Philharmonic Woodwind Quintet in January. The United Strings of Color will perform in March and the Triangle Youth Jazz Lab in April. Stay tuned for dates and times. This concert is supported by a grant from Lazy Daze

TYP Honors Recital March 27

|

The wealth of talent auditioning on January 12th at Ruggero Piano for the Triangle Youth Philharmonic Honors Recital was incredible! Every single musician who played that day would have represented the Philharmonic Association and TYP very well in the upcoming March "Fourth Friday" recital series at Ruggero Piano. But, we only wanted about an hour of music. Our adjudicator, Harry Davidson who serves as the Conductor of the Duke University Orchestra, deliberated for a long time after the auditions and it was obviously not easy to come to a decision. We are pleased that there will be two chamber pieces

Here’s What Our Reviewers Say

The best of the area’s young musicians, participants in the Triangle Youth Philharmonic and the Triangle Youth Symphony…

Christina Nfong, News and Observer

There are lots of reasons to support the youth orchestras of the Philharmonic Association. The most important is that they give first-rate performances. A close second is that the young musicians of TYP, TYS and TYO are the classical musicians of the future, the pros, semi-pros, and amateurs who will continue to maintain the classical tradition……they comprise the cream of the crop. This is not little league; they play hardball, and they play it well.

[TYP and TYS] do much more than train musicians. They teach a lifelong appreciation and love of music. One alum recently submitted a piece for the Philharmonic Association News entitled: “Music Keeps Me Sane.” Playing with TYP taught her commitment and about setting standards.

There’s hope for our collective musical future, thanks to the Triangle Youth Philharmonic and similar ensembles. The 250 or so young artists involved in the PA’s programs merit our attention and support.  Their love of music and delight in the teamwork required to create it was evident in every measure.
