Coming in 2023: The Rhapsody Workshop at King Street Station
Our longtime students, board members, staff and community leaders have collaborated with Red Eagle Soaring, Totem Star, Jackson Street Music Program, Wh!pSmart, SKL architects, The Cultural Space Agency, and Sellen Constructrion to envision and build the first ever headquarters for our organization.
Centering Seattle's BIPOC youth, the space will host over 1,000 square feet for our music classes and workshops that have remained at the heart of tRp since we began in 2013, while also including:
a small venue for concerts, open mics, and performing arts.
dance classes and events
a luthier's workshop for stringed instrument maintenance and repair.
the Rhapsody Instrument Library
a record player and donated collection of books & records
a kitchenette that will help ensure that free snacks remain a signature of our gatherings, and heritage potluck jams can include hot food at our jam sessions for youth.
