“TAG albums have historically been a highlight for us at RARB, and Six Feet Apart is no different. It's a true testament to the strength of the program at Cypress Lake High School that the pandemic seemingly didn't affect the quality of this group's vocals or recordings, despite a lack of group rehearsals and an unusual recording setup.” - Catherine Lewis
