Christian Academy of Performing Arts Austin is a non-profit organization created in the spring of 2015 to serve as an umbrella entity over all of the former CCSA choirs, from Angel Choir through Concert Choir and Master’s Singers. The non-profit organization is over seen by a Board of Directors and is a tax-exempt religious and educational organization registered with the Texas Secretary of State as a Texas non-profit corporation. CAPA Austin strives to carry forward the original vision and tradition of excellence in Christian choral instruction that so many homeschool students benefited from for over two decades through CCSA.

New students are welcome!

Please visit the registration page to register your student for a particular choir. Details about each choir and tuition can be found on each Choir’s page.

Families who are new to CAPA may register their students on a trial basis for their first semester. Students may attend and participate for their first two weeks without having to commit for the semester continues. After that time, students wanting to continue will need to pay the registration fee and either half or full payment for the semester. (Full payment by the third week is required to qualify for the discount.)

Your recommendation is our best advertising, so please do post information to any online groups you may be involved with.

All of the choirs emphasize quality Christian music education

Lora Maeurer is committed to teaching our children to sing quality, classical choral arrangements; to sight read, and to participate in challenging competitions.

Our vision includes not just weekly choir rehearsals, but the same range of competitions and performances, including the TPSMEA competition, solo and ensemble event, the Capitol and nursing home performances, and of course the Christmas and spring concerts. As the performing arts name implies, CAPA goes beyond choral performances each year by offering a summer musical as well.

While excellence in musical instruction is our goal, we also strive to provide a safe social environment for our homeschool and private school students. An active calendar of social events include dances, parties, and other opportunities for our students to enjoy fellowship while honoring God.

Rehearsals are one day each week with our younger choirs offering up to three time and location options
