Northwest blues program with lady A and John Oliver III

Northwest Blues

tRp educational program for K - 12th grade

In collaboration with Lady A Productions, we are working to deepen the awareness and understanding of blues music and culture as it exists today in the Pacific Northwest.

The Northwest Blues program provides schools (K - 12th) with three options:

  • #1: Written blues music curriculum that teachers can deliver in classrooms with input and guidance from living masters of this essential, American tradition.

  • #2: Concert programs geared towards students ages 5 and older. These programs will serve to both supplement and reinforce the curriculum described above.

  • #3: Residency programs composed of multiple classroom workshops followed by a culminating performance.

A public, regionally touring, multi-generational, diverse traveling revue featuring The Rhapsody Project Songsters playing many styles of blues alongside nationally touring, award-winning professional artists such as Lady ABriarJohn Oliver IIIBen HunterJoe Seamons, and more!

The programs above were designed collaboratively with Lady A Productions and TRP Curriculum Development Lead Liana Green
