Washington Performing Arts

Washington Performing Arts showcases an array of performances by students and teaching artists from the Capital Arts Partnership (CAP) program, an award-winning, performance-based music education program in the DC Public Schools (DCPS). The four CAP programs—Capital Jazz, Capital Strings, Capital Dance, and Capital Voices—foster vital reading, writing, listening, improvisation, and performance skills through hands¬on instruction, residencies with diverse Teaching Artists, and on-stage performances in venues across DC.
