What do students say about the program?
“The PA internship program opened my eyes to the inner workings of their organization. I learned about all the hard work that goes into keeping it running. I had the chance to not only participate in crucial brainstorming for fundraisers and events, I was also able to work alongside other talented interns and participate in a hands-on approach. My favorite aspect of the program was expanding my creative thinking.” -Amanda Eckhoff
“The PA Internship Program offered me the unique opportunity to learn new skills associated with the inner workings of an association as well as encouraged and inspired me to step outside my comfort zone and try new projects for the PA like managing social media and video editing. I am so grateful for my opportunity to participate in the program as it offered the ability to learn more about how to be a leader; and was a fun, useful, and memorable experience.” -Callista Holleschak
“The PA Musician Intern Program is both fun and informative. It not only allows for a more hands-on exploration of management and fundraising, but also offers opportunities to help in my community and contribute my own ideas. I love collaborating with other musicians from different backgrounds and contributing to initiatives that help improve both the ensembles and the community.” -Mary Kolbas
“It was honestly more than an honor to participate in the Philharmonic Association’s internship program. Through our meetings and events I was not only able to observe the insides of how the non-profit organization works behind the scenes, but was also able to gain skills of organization and further participate in meaningful ways as a musician.” -Hannah Won
