Conservatory of Music and Performing Arts Society (COMPAS) is a private non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to promoting the arts; mainly by funding and advocating for local artists, awarding prizes, and organizing arts events.
COMPAS is an ever-growing, ever-evolving body of passionate and committed leaders in their crafts, and rich in diversity, culture and limitless ideas.
Our COMPAS headquarters 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.
With help from participating COMPAS Creative Space Venues (CCSV), our social impact spans the entire Trenton city-limit. CCSV's include new and existing arts education and recreational facilities situated in every section of the city. (Please refer to our COMPAS Campus map for locations.)
Our COMPAS Teaching and Performing Artists provide services primarily in the Trenton area, but occasionally travel outside city-limits with their talents.
We instruct, perform, present and provide workshops, arts-education residencies and seminars. We plan, organize, collaborate and work with schools, other organizations to strengthen the impact of our "Arts Council" on the community and artist, to integrate arts and culture in all aspects of community life, and cultivate a sustainable and diverse cultural community for the people of Trenton, NJ and surrounding areas.
COMPAS Teaching and Performing Artists are prepared to serve all segments of populations in an effort to combat a number of social ills that plague our capitol city directly and intentional way. With the help of various social service, civic, faith-based, community and social organizations throughout the Trenton and Tri-state area, unique and creative artistic measures are taken to address a host of community interests that will enable the revitalization of an city one person at a time.
