Yana Dee is not your typical seamstress.

She doesn’t use pins. She doesn’t use an iron very often, and she doesn’t use patterns in the traditional sense. She now has a store located in Traverse City’s high-rent downtown. Hear how she makes women’s clothing by combining retro ways with modern trends.

 This week on the Green Room: Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It’ gets a folk music makeover. Courtney Kaiser-Sandler, instructor of the singer-songwriter program here at Interlochen Arts Academy, talks about creating the play’s original score.

  This month on Radio Collage, we feature a few works you probably already know, along with several that you likely have never heard. We've got traditional Irish songs,  music of  Villa-Lobos, Interlochen alumnus Peter Erskine and works by two current Academy students.  In addition,  we've got   a trombone quartet by Eric Ewazen and a harpist playing a piece by Salzedo.  And, just for the fun of it, there's a cello ensemble performing some Lennon & McCartney!
