Quality, free and informal live concerts are offered to all public, private, parochial, charter and home schools in Summit County and surrounding areas. The purpose is to introduce and foster music appreciation, encourage young musicians, and create a connection between cultures and races where music becomes vividly experienced as a universal language. Children’s Concert Society enlists outstanding performers and strive to bring the very best of instrumental, vocal, and dance programs to our student communities. These in school performances enable the children to experience the music in a less structured environment–to ask questions, to learn the history of the instruments, and even to touch the instruments! CCS has a close relationship with the School of Music at the University of Akron for these In-School concerts. Along with several professional musicians, many graduate student ensembles perform. Not only are the children inspired by the graduate students, but the graduate students themselves benefit from the exposure to young audiences. This experience demonstrates to them the importance of enriching the children’s musical education and may influence them throughout their careers as teachers and/or performing artists.
