Our Model

How tRp confronts injustice and enriches the community

We are a multi-generational community that celebrates music and heritage through an anti-racist lens.

The tRp Model

Some of the ways we do this include providing music instruction, cultural events, virtual classes, and cultural workforce development to establish racial and cultural equity. Our programs teach people to root themselves in their layers of heritage, and tap the power of music and culture to confront injustice and enrich their communities.

We utilize a fully collaborative leadership structure, including our interns and youth participants, as well as members who are active in other states. Both internally and externally, the goal for The Rhapsody Project is non-hierarchical, equitable, and focused on cultivating youth leadership.
