CCPAS is a non-profit organization that provides many benefits to performing musicians and audience alike through free public concerts and workshops for adults and children.

Workshops are given multiple times during each month organized by different instruments and level of playing ability. Free concerts are given at least twice most months, from September through June, showcasing the remarkable talents of our membership, with special performances for new compositions, organ, and jazz piano. Everyone is welcome.

The purpose of the Society is to promote the performing arts among its members and in the community. The goals are:

• To foster the growth and appreciation of the performing arts within the community,
• To encourage youth by providing performing and educational programs, and
• To provide performance opportunities for community artists and encourage sharing of their
   talents for mutual enjoyment, education, and fellowship.

You are invited to join CCPAS and help support our goals. Among the benefits of membership are:

• Participation in monthly or bi-monthly workshops for musicians at various levels of
   playing ability.
• An annual Membership Directory that lists addresses and telephone numbers of over 250
   members. This directory can be used, among other things, to help members find fellow
   musicians who wish to play together.
• A monthly newsletter that contains information about our concerts, workshops,
   and youth activities.

The low membership dues at CCPAS only partially covers the costs of our many activities. CCPAS is dependent on donations for its youth programs such as scholarships, master classes, and the Student Ensemble Music Workshop. Your donations to support these programs are greatly appreciated.

CCPAS focuses primarily on Contra Costa County but welcomes people from everywhere. Your membership in CCPAS provides you with opportunities for enjoying music and keeps you in touch with the community of musicians around you.

CCPAS is a non-profit organization with tax-exempt status organized under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.
