Cathedral Park Performing Arts Collective (CPPAC) is a nonprofit music & theatre arts education organization located in the heart of downtown St. Johns, Portland. This community-driven nonprofit was founded by St. Johns residents who are professional musicians, actors, and teachers with a passion for the performing arts. Our mission is to foster self-determination through the creative engagement of the community in the performing arts. CPPAC operates on the belief that self-determination, a sense of freedom and motivation to do what is interesting, personally important, and vitalizing, is instrumental to the creative process and a key component to achieving one’s goals.
In an effort to best serve our community, CPPAC offers classes and performance ensembles for all ages, children and adults, through both our studio program and our community outreach partnerships. Programs include: voice & choir, marimba, strings & orchestra, guitar & ukulele, composition, acting & improv, musical theatre, build-a-band, early childhood music & movement, and an intergenerational program that connects community members of all ages.
