The Piano Salon is an event dedicated to the enjoyment of great music through playing and listening. Performing students share a piece that has been prepared with performance in mind. We encourage participation from adult students of all ages and levels who are willing to embrace performance as part of the learning process. The concert hall at Greenwich House provides an intimate recital setting, housed in the quaint, historic neighborhood of the West Village. The small stage accommodates two Steinway grand pianos. Performers and their guests are invited to enjoy wine and other refreshments in the garden after the recital. The atmosphere is encouraging and non-judgmental. The audience is made up of teachers, the performing pianists, their family and friends, but any pianist is welcome to attend, especially to consider the possibility of performing next year. The PTC is a community dedicated to the development of each individual pianist, and we hope to inspire and encourage those milestones along the way.
