About

Christian Coral Society of Austin Christian Academy of Performing Arts Austin CCSA CAPA Homeschool Choir

The choirs and alumni as well as audience sing The Lord Bless & Keep You together Christmas 2014

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.


Registration is now open!


Please visit the payments page for further information about payment options or the registration page to register your student for a particular choir.

Your recommendation is our best advertising, so please do post information to any online groups you may be involved with. Classes begin the last week of August.


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.
