Childrens Concert Society (CCS) of Akron, OH has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.  Occurring this year on November 29, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. 
Childrens Concert Society, in its 69th season, provides live performing arts experiences to students throughout Summit County and beyond.  Opportunities provided the students exist in four different ways:  1.  Concert Hall Series at the Akron Civic Theatre where buses are provided for free to bus students to a variety of live performances that encompass music, dance, and opera, 2.  In-School Concert Series which are provided to schools for free and this year featuring 18 different ensembles  that can be requested, 3.  Scholastic Composers Contest which allows students to show their creativity, and 4.  a percussion outreach program at an area school. 
All of these wonderful opportunities not only expose students to quality performances, but also have an end result of students participating in the arts and becoming future patrons of our communities arts offerings. 
All of these programming opportunities would not be possible without support of community organizations and individual supporters.  If you realize the importance of the arts in a childs education and have a passion for live performing arts experiences yourself, please help fund the projects of Childrens Concert Society. 
Please look at our Facebook page at Childrens Concert Society of Akron, OH or our website at childrensconcertsociety.org.
