"Cherry Street Pier is Philly's Best New Thing" – Philadelphia Magazine

This arts hub on Philadelphia’s burgeoning waterfront now serves as our new office, rehearsal studio, and collaborative performance space. Visitors will have opportunities to see musicians and composers at work, all while enjoying food, drink, and visiting artists in the ever-changing exhibits and markets on the Pier.

We are especially excited to announce the arrival of our “Composer At Work” window at Cherry Street Pier, funded by the Barra Catalyst Fund and Musical Fund Society of Philadelphia, where dozens of Philadelphia-area composers of all ages and genres will have a chance to work on site, and present their music to new audiences.
