Making Music Magical
Since 1947 volunteers have remained steadfast in their commitment to providing access for children to quality performing arts experiences. Over the past 69 years millions of children of all ages have had the opportunity to experience different forms of music including symphony, wind ensemble, brass band, jazz, steel band, opera, ballet and more! CCS operates on a very small budget and has always been fiscally responsible. Children’s Concert Society is a non-profit organization that relies on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations to bring music to children. Help us provide the children in our community quality arts experiences!
