Where We Are
Our COMPAS home base is conveniently located in the heart of New Jersey's Capital City at The Conservatory Mansion. It is easily accessible via major highways and railways. And now, as a result of the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, SOME of our artists have also gone VIRTUAL!
COMPAS Teaching and Performing Artists provide services primarily in the Trenton area, but also travel outside the city limits to spread their gifts and talents.
