After a hiatus due mainly to the Covid pandemic, PCS is pleased to resume collaboration with the Johnstown Concert Series. As of the 2024-25 season, one PCS Major winner will be featured on that series which brings world-class musicians to Johnstown since 2005.
Six Major Artist winners are presented in three concerts, generally in late fall. Young Artist Winners are presented in the spring. Major Auditions are open to candidates who are eighteen (18) years or older; Young Artist instrumentalists must be under the age of 19, vocalists under 22 by June 30 of the audition year. All candidates must meet the Pittsburgh Concert Society program and living area requirements. Each winner receives a financial award.
