Franco-American: Music From Ravel To Nestico

Trombonist Ryan Apathy playing in the Academy Jazz Ensemble. Ryan also produced this episode of Radio Collage.

  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.
