Redmond Proficiency Academy (RPA) High School students will release an album of original music titled The Evergreen Sessions on the digital music site Bandcamp in January 2020.
“We’re excited to release this album showcasing the hard work and talent of our students,” said Jonathan Moore, RPA High School music director. “RPA prides itself on offering real-world learning opportunities for its students. Our music collective provides training in all areas of the music business from performance to marketing and sound engineering.”
The album’s music and accompanying artwork was designed, composed, performed and recorded by RPA students.
“Releasing an album of original student work involves the collaboration of many students across the fine arts departments at RPA, providing them an opportunity to create a lasting portfolio as they advance to college or career,” Moore said.
The album will feature an eclectic mix of original compositions ranging from acoustic to indie rock.
The first single off the album, featuring an original song written and performed by senior Jaedon Churchill-Dicks, is available now at https://rpa-music.bandcamp.com.
