As you may know, PCMS presents concerts at venues throughout Center City Philadelphia. A natural extension of any concert event is a meal at one of our city’s fine restaurants or a nightcap following an evening of great music. We thought we’d start a list of some of our favorite places, and please feel free.
The Piano Series has always been an important, and also very popular, part of the PCMS season. Those who have been coming to these recitals for years may have noticed our commitment to presenting not only great artists but a very particular kind of musician. As a rule, we tend to choose artists whose playing embodies a certain integrity.

Each year about this time the hustle and bustle of the summer months transitions to an excitement that reminds all of us why we do what we do. During the summer we work tirelessly preparing for our upcoming season – finalizing artist contracts, arranging concert hall details, renting pianos, booking hotel rooms, writing grants, collecting.
