CAPA's Education Department believes everyone in our community deserves to experience the transformative power of the arts.

CAPA Marquee Awards

The CAPA Marquee Awards are designed to celebrate, support, and advocate for high school musical theatre education throughout Central Ohio. To participate, schools register to have their productions reviewed by a team of three adjudicators, who will provide directors with valuable feedback. After the adjudication period ends on April 28, 2019, nominees for awards will be announced at a press conference event. 

Mindful Music Moments

On January 16, Pickerington Elementary became the first central Ohio school to implement Mindful Music Moments, a daily mindfulness and classical music program that promotes student focus. With support from CAPA, the Columbus Symphony and Opera Columbus, students in grades K-6 listen to four minutes of recorded classical music and relaxation prompts at the start of each school day during morning announcements. Part music appreciation and part stress-reduction techniques, the program offers insight on the composers and music history while taking a moment to calm students’ minds and prepare them to learn.
