PA Interns Share Highlights from Jazz Concert

The Philharmonic Association Musician Internship program gives upperclassmen members of the PA the opportunity to experience all aspects of the management of the Philharmonic Association.  We believe it is important for our interns to have a thorough understanding of and appreciation for the organization that they are working for.  To facilitate this deeper understanding of the PA, we encourage our interns to attend a concert each semester beyond just the concert that they are performing in.  We also ask that the interns share a review of their favorite moments from the concert they attended. This assignment serves a double purpose.  We

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.
