Supporting the Arts Details

128 years after its inception, Pittsburgh's Tuesday Musical Club remains actively dedicated to promoting high quality musical programs in the region. Besides offering opportunities for performers and concert-goers, a principal commitment of the Tuesday Musical Club is to award scholarships for college and graduate students under age 25 who are from the Pittsburgh area and are pursuing advanced education in music. The first scholarship was awarded in 1928, and auditions for scholarships are held biannually. This past year TMC awarded $49,800 in tuition money to fourteen young and talented area musicians. TMC also has an active community outreach program called Musicare, which provides numerous choral, chamber ensembles and solo recitals for residents of nursing homes, subsidized housing, and senior centers throughout Allegheny County. These musicians are often invited to perform at a variety of public and city events as well.



Despite its name, not all musical activities of TMC occur on Tuesdays.

Performances Details

Despite its name, not all musical activities of TMC occur on Tuesdays. This season our Tuesday afternoon offerings at Levy Hall at Temple Beth Shalom include seven public concerts and three recitals. We also have a Sunday afternoon public concert to showcase current TMC scholarship winners. The divisions tailor meeting times to their member's schedules resulting in TMC divisional events on varied weekdays, daytime and evening, and on weekends.  There are many opportunities for members to make and listen to music together.
