Founded by St. Pete Beach resident and Steinway Artist Rebecca Penneys as a tuition-free gift for aspiring collegiate pianists, RPPF is a nonprofit 501(c)3, funded entirely by donations.

Penneys was professor of piano at the Eastman School of Music from 1980-2017 and chairwoman of the Chautauqua Institution Piano Department from 1985 to 2012. She now holds the title of Professor Emerita of Piano at Eastman School of Music. She was a resident artist as pianist-founder of the New Arts Trio at Chautauqua from 1978-2012. In 2013 Rebecca launched the Rebecca Penneys Friends of Piano (non-profit 501c3) and the Rebecca Penneys Piano Festival as a sequel to her well-known Chautauqua piano program. 

The worship services are open to the community. Visitors are always welcome at PCPC.
