Thank You Dedicated Volunteers!

|

One of our most critical volunteer positions is the Parent Coordinator for each ensemble. This person is the first line of communication between the conductors, administrators, and the members and parents in each group. As a parent of a musician in the group, they know what communications need to occur and are vital to a well-run organization. Another important position is that of the weekly Attendance Volunteer. They help us encourage the team work so vital to ensemble playing. Please communicate in advance any absences that you know will occur for your musician. This will help our conductors make the

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.
