Welcome to the Green Room, a weekly arts journal from Interlochen Public Radio. Listen below to this week's episode about the arts, artists and performance.


Dancers from the original 1913 production of Stravinsky's 'The Rite of Spring.'

Why is it called the Green Room?

A green room is a space where performers hang out between the dressing room and the stage. It's a place to relax, that usually has a couch and some snacks. So think of the Green Room on Interlochen Public Radio as your backstage pass into the world of the arts each week.

There is some irony with the name. Though IPR constantly hosts artists as they perform live from our very own Studio A, we don't actually have a green room in the building. We don't even have a couch!
