PHILHARMONIC ASSOCIATION INC

Providing exceptional opportunities for young musicians since 1988

aka Triangle Youth Music

Cary, NC

Mission

The mission of the Philharmonic Association is to educate the next generation in great classical and jazz music through ensemble performance, while encouraging appreciation, community participation, and support of these activities.

Notes from the Nonprofit

Young musicians learn so much from participating in a PA ensemble: dedication, discipline and focus, teamwork, self-confidence, and creative expression. They find both friends and positive role models among musicians from many different cultures and backgrounds. They develop skills in critical thinking that will serve them well in whatever they choose to do. And best of all, they get to study and perform some of the most incredible music ever written. Some 2500 young musicians have participated in PA ensembles since our inception.

What we aim to solve

The Philharmonic Association is in need of a dedicated rehearsal facility. Such a facility would better serve our current participants with scheduling autonomy in a consistent and acoustically appropriate rehearsal site. It would provide rehearsal and performance space for small ensembles and community groups. It would also enable the addition of needed program offerings including track-out and summer sessions, new ensembles and classes.
A Center for Youth Music would ensure that young musicians in the Triangle would continue to have the opportunity to participate in orchestra, jazz, and chamber music programs in the future.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

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.

The Philharmonic Association engages in ongoing evaluation of our programming to determine how best to meet community need.

The Strategic Planning Committee, a subcommittee of the Board of Directors, is charged with long range planning. The Philharmonic Association is in the process of developing an endowment fund to ensure its long-term financial sustainability. A reliable rehearsal facility is the organization's biggest challenge and plans to have a home for the organization are being pursued.

The Philharmonic Association continues to add programming to better serve our community's youth musicians. The numbers of participants continue to grow. Our audience is expanding to include more under served communities and are more diverse.

We continue to offer first rate music education and performances. We have yet to achieve our dream of a Center for Youth Music - a dedicated rehearsal facility that would allow our groups to reach their full potential.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
