The Catskills Academy for Performing Arts is the latest program of the Phoenicia Festival of The Voice Foundation.It represents the educational departement of the Foundation and has for mission to promote the human voice and in general the performing arts as an instrument of peace, healing, artistic expression, and self enrichment by presenting world class educational programs from technical, administrative, production aspects of the performing arts to artistic disciplines and performances of opera, song, poetry, baroque music, world music, contemporary choral and instrumental music as well as Theatre pieces and the Dance.
CAPA is intended to also serve as an “economic engine” for the greater Catskills community. That is: To place Phoenicia on the map as a major year round cultural destination for people from local communities, the Hudson Valley, New York City, and beyond.
All year round, CAPA offers programs for the community, developing like this the audiences of the future and sharing the joy of performing arts to the dilettante , bonding members of the community together but essentially has the mission to serve and encourage the next generations of talents and young professionals.
CAPA will develop and add additional programs as it continues to grow within the primary purposes driven by our primary mission.
Finally, CAPA hope to establish itself as an important cultural institution in the North East, support the Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice on request and serve also, as said earlier, as a significant player in the Ulster County, NY economy.
