Serving and Learning: PA Internship Program

The new Musician Intern Program has been up and running for a few months now.   All ten musician interns have been busy serving the PA and learning about what goes on behind the scenes of this organization. Once a month, all interns meet to review progress, plan, and work on projects.  Much work is done between meetings as well.  The interns are divided up into different teams depending on their interests.  The Videography Team is currently putting together a promotional video for the PA. Meanwhile, the Stage Crew has been setting up rehearsal rooms before rehearsals and cleaning them up afterwards each week.

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.
