PCGS Professional Members Concert

Kevin J. Cope will perform several of his own compositions with a total length of approximately 8 minutes.

Acknowledging and appreciating the artists that live in our vicinity is essential to ensuring the longevity of all fields of the arts. The arts flourish not just in distant havens such as Paris, New York, or Tokyo, but also in the homes of our neighbors in Philadelphia. Our talented membership includes guitar builders, composers, instructors, professional performers, and college professors. This annual concert is our homage to the many talented members of the Philadelphia Classical Guitar Society. 

We invite you to join us for the concert and stay for our post concert Holiday Party where you can meet other members and local artists and celebrate the holiday season.
