Five years after his debut—a concert at Radziwiłł Palace in aid of the Warsaw Charitable Society—Fryderyk Chopin gave another public performance, in the WCS’s own headquarters: the ‘Res Sacra Miser’ building on ul. Krakowskie Przedmieście (near the corner of ul. Bednarska). In 1823, Chopin took part in a concert there in aid of charity.
