Music & Voice

RTA’s music program began at Sing Sing with a vocal workshop for West Side Story, our first musical, and took on a life of its own. Vocal workshops at Green Haven Correctional Facility led to a revue performed for the prison population, which responded enthusiastically to such Broadway classics as There is Nothing Like a Dame.


RTA provided keyboards to participants at Woodbourne and Bedford Hills, which has produced three musicals, including Bedford Sings Broadway! and a concert of original songs from a popular ongoing songwriting workshop.

"I have not sung since high school or since I have been in prison. This is not the place where one wakes up singing."
