The Quest was a musical partnership between SEEDS EcoSchool, Blackbird Arts, and Earthwork Music. Students learned about the fine arts through singing, playing instruments, and working together. The experience culminated in a performance that brought students from different schools onto the same stage. The Quest inspired a love for music and increased confidence levels.
