Quarentunes: The Lower, Middle and Upper School Virtual Spring Concert

Quarantunes was produced during remote learning via recording and sound engineering of student vocal and instrumental tracks. It is the result of both the students' hard work and the hard work of teacher Dominique Castro, who oversaw the engineering and creation of the album, as well as teachers Kimani Lumsden, Robb Barnard, and Sheila Zuccarello, who did much engineering of their own. A link to the album is below as well as a full track listing. You can listen to them via Drive or download them to play on another platform.

It is important to note that all of the songs feature a combination of live vocals, live instruments, electronic instruments, software instruments, and pre-recorded loops that were layered together one by one. Students also did much of their own editing and mixing of tracks, which is made all the more amazing by the fact that hardly anyone (faculty included) had worked with music engineering software before. We would also like to credit Samantha Bennett with the fantastic title of the album.
