CAPA Launches “ApART Together” Free Facebook Concert Series

Posted: April 21, 2020

In response to the impact COVID-19 has taken on local performing artists, CAPA has launched the ApART Together Concert Series. From April 24-30, the free series will stream 30-minute sets daily at 7pm from diverse, local artists on the CAPA Facebook page, offering viewers the chance to experience the wealth of local talent that calls Columbus home and providing performers the opportunity to earn an income while venues are closed. CAPA will pay each performer a fee, and during each concert, also provide links for viewers to “tip” artists directly.

“With no way to sell tickets, it’s a tough time for artists financially,” stated CAPA VP of Programming Rich Corsi. “This is CAPA’s way of offering them a place to perform and earn an income similar to what they would for a normal weekend performance. Additionally, this gives CAPA a way to stay connected with its audiences and expose them to fantastic local artists that may be new to them.”

The ApART Together Concert Series schedule is as follows:
