Under the leadership of Phil Hall, The Philhallmonic Society is a bevy of beautiful Broadway, cabaret and classical singers who contribute their talents to support humanitarian causes.  They sing their hearts out to send a message which is all too often forgotten: it is never too late to follow your passion, and, by doing so, find fulfillment and help others.   For over the past year, these multi-talented ladies have been performing free of charge at various charitable organizations from The Actors Fund Home to The Salvation Army residence.

The Philhallmonic Society's ensemble of alluring ladies will inspire you with their rich feminine energy and dynamic performances. The talented singers of the Philhallmonic Society will entrance you with the clever, emotional lyrics of Lorenz Hart and the magnificent melodies of Richard Rodgers, featuring an array of songs from Broadway's favorite shows of that era.
