It was a pleasant sight in the Macy's store at Wiregrass Mall as the kids of the Koss Music & Cultural Arts Institute performed for the store's patrons on August 24th.

Koss said "I would like to offer sincere thanks and appreciation to Ms. Linda Guthrie as well as the management and staff of Macy's for accommodating us. It was really special to see our kids performing various pieces of music and entertaining the shoppers." He also expressed appreciation for Ann Berg of the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay and Steve Hoschak of TD Bank who were personally very supportive as well as assisted in the direction of grants to the institute.

Greg Koss has been making music for over two decades and wants to make sure that the kids in Pasco/Hernando County are able to have an opportunity to learn and be as creative as he is. Koss Music and Arts Institute a 501-C3 non-profit organization, teaches dozens of kids the fine arts of music every evening. Although Koss has had a difficult time raising the necessary funds to support his business, he has persevered. He constantly is in need of new equipment, instruments and teaching tools as well as the opportunity to expose the kids to new environments. The goal is to develop the talents of as many kids as possible. It is hoped that the exposure the kids received at the Macy's event will be just the start of a new trend. They need the support of public and private organizations to be successful.
Koss and kids will be performing at the 2013 Pasco Hernando Hispanic Chamber's Business and Career Expo on October 18th at the Wesley Chapel Toyota on Eagleston Drive from 6pm.
