Radio Collage has a significant French influence this time around. We'll hear two works by Ravel, a suite by Milhaud, and an ancient tale written down in the 17th century by Frenchman Charles Perrault - we know it today as "Little Red Riding Hood". To balance things a bit, there are two works written by Interlochen Arts Academy students Kendra Prat and Christopher Bell, along with a performance of Sammy Nestico's "Freckle Face" by the Arts Academy Jazz Ensemble.
This month on Radio Collage, an excerpt from the short story What I'm Talking About by creative writer Ashanti Davis, the Interlochen Arts Academy band performs Uppin' Adam and the Theatre Department takes a fresh look at Cinderella. The Academy Orchestra performs Elgar's Nimrod, pianist Grace Zhang plays Ondine by Ravel and we'll hear the opening of a Radio Drama based loosely, very loosely, on Shakespeare's Two Gentleman of Verona. ( listen to the full drama here )
In this edition of Radio Collage: the Interlochen Arts Academy Band brings us Jupiter from The Planets, the Percussion Ensemble tackles a piece by David Gillingham, and the Orchestra takes us to the opera with the Overture and some Ballet Music from Mozart's Idomeneo. We'll also hear a scene from Shakespeare's Coriolanus, an original work from the Singer-Songwriter program, and a "jazzy" piece based on a Paganini Caprice.
Interlochen Arts Academy students perform Bernstein's Divertimento for Orchestra, a scene from Shakespeare's Coriolanus, and the Percussion Ensemble, Jazz Combo, and Band are featured. Hear a student's thoughts on this northern Michigan winter, and a startling performance by a student wind ensemble.
