CAPA Extends “ApART Together” Free Facebook Concert Series to Feature Nine Additional Local Artists
Posted: May 19, 2020
After a successful April launch of the ApART Together Concert Series, CAPA has decided to extend the free, online series to feature nine additional concerts from local artists. For three consecutive weekends—May 21-23, May 28-30, and June 4-6—CAPA will stream 30-minute sets daily at 7pm on its Facebook page that showcase the wealth of local talent available in Columbus. The series also provides artists the opportunity to earn an income while venues are closed as CAPA will pay each performer a fee, and during each concert, also provide links for viewers to “tip” artists directly.
“With such a great response to our first round of ApART Together online concerts, we decided to extend the series,” stated CAPA VP of Programming Rich Corsi. “Viewers have really enjoyed the opportunity to spend an evening with their favorite local artists again and have been very supportive of those performances they’ve been missing.”
