Sitting in the Music Room listening to prize-winning musicians from many countries has not only given me enormous pleasure, hearing the classics played with such fervor and skill, but has also broadened my taste for new and unusual music.
Of her favorite space in The Phillips Collection, the Music Room, volunteer Faezeh Foroutan says “It is elegant; intimate for concerts; has great paintings on the walls; and most importantly from my perspective, has great acoustics.”
My favorite part of interacting with visitors is seeing how eager they are to share their previous experiences at art museums and the reasons why they are at the Phillips. Seeing how excited first time visitors are to stand in front of Renoir’s Luncheon of the Boating Party enhances my volunteer experience. Volunteering at the Phillips is a wonderful opportunity to surround myself with art lovers.
