Abstract

The purpose of creating the Crossroads Recording Project is to collaborate with the phenomenal theatre talent of Seattle, to create a recording of where I am now as a artist/performer, to give back to the education programs that got me to where I am today, and to offer the world a new version of classic showtunes in an artistic format that is tangible to my scholastic endeavors in my major of musical theatre. The idea of crossroads acts as the motif for this project, to inform many of the artistic perspectives of the characters in each of these pieces. Not only will many characters intersect lives in this recording, but also all of the artists will cross paths to collaborate with each other when they all intersect together to create this artistic expression. With the profits of the sales of the album, a portion of funds will go back to the theatre education programs in Seattle, including 5th Avenue Rising Star Project and Northwest Choirs, and to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. In my scholastic work, the exploration into these songs each develops a different moment, decision, or conflict between the characters involved. From this project, there will be an established analysis about producing a successful artistic piece of work through collaborating with other artists on a vision, developing different artistic talents in the studio, and learning how to nurture a learning process in a high stress environment of a professional recording studio.
