Vision Statement of the Philharmonic Association
The vision of the Philharmonic Association is to set the standard in our country for providing a comprehensive array of classical and jazz ensemble opportunities for young musicians, while at the same time leading our peers in growing and sustaining a culture of diversity, inclusion and accessibility in the arts.
Value Statement of the Philharmonic Association: Diversity and Inclusion
The Philharmonic Association values the benefit that diversity brings to our organization and will make every reasonable accommodation as we ensure an inclusive environment for our young musicians, staff, and audiences.
All Philharmonic Association rehearsal and concert venues are wheelchair accessible. At the bottom of each performance page on our web site is a link to specific accessibility information for the venue. We would like to ensure a successful experience and welcome advance notice of circumstances that may require additional assistance or accommodation.
A large print program page is available at all Philharmonic Association Concerts where there is a printed program. Please ask an usher to provide you with the large print version.
Assistive listening devices are available for concerts at Meymandi Concert Hall and Cary Arts Center.
The Philharmonic Association strives to increase our accessibility and inclusion of artists and audience members with disabilities. We encourage musicians with special needs and their parents to meet with staff to design a protocol that will best help that musician to be successful.
The Philharmonic Association realizes that organizations need to continually work towards greater accessibility and inclusion. To that end, we welcome feedback, suggestions, criticisms from our Philharmonic Association family as well as audience members. If you have something to share or if you would like to be involved in increasing our accessibility, please contact our Director of Community Engagement and Accessibility Coordinator Heather Elliott.
