Gale force winds fueled huge waves on the northern Great Lakes Tuesday with some on Lake Michigan topping out at 13 feet. For some residents in Michigan, the fall storm season is the time to hunker down — but for others it’s the perfect time to jump in the lake.


The Atlantic Harp Duo was formed in Paris, but the duo's harpists Marta Power and Elizabeth Jaxon each have deep roots in the Great Lakes region.

They're here in Northern Michigan on tour for their new album, Ariadne Rediviva. Power and Jaxon stopped by IPR's Studio B to talk about their new album and share some music.

Listen to the entire conversation, including excerpts of the new album, below.

On Friday, October 25, IPR's music director Amanda Sewell will be meeting listeners at the NMC Concert Band concert at Milliken Auditorium in Traverse City's Dennos Museum Center. 

The concert is called "Musicals that Changed Our Lives." The conductor is Pat Brumbaugh.

17 hours ago

Chris Correa is a senior at Interlochen Arts Academy. He is from Long Beach, California and studies oboe with Dane Philipsen.

Chris visited IPR’s Studio A to perform the etude "Boulevard des Capucines" by Gilles Silvestrini.

He told IPR why he enjoys the repertoire he's working on and how reed making class is going.

Listen below for the entire interview and performance.

 

In Studio A with Chris Correa was engineered by Brock Morman with production assistance from Zachary Sobania.

The Northland Players will put on a production of "Once Upon a Mattress" this weekend at the Cheboygan Opera House. The classic 1959 musical, at its time a star-maker for Carol Burnett, is based on the fairy tale "The Princess and the Pea" with music by Mary Rodgers and Marshall Barer.

Cast member Jim Sturgill, who plays The Jester in the show, stopped by Classical IPR to share some music from the show and talk about communities coming together as a volunteer artistic force.

A resolution in the state house proposes changes to the state constitution to remove limits on the age of Michigan judges.

Under current law a person cannot be over the age of 70 when elected or appointed to a judicial office. 

Republican State Representative Tommy Brann sponsored the measure. He said he’s nearly seventy and it isn’t that old. 

This week marks the anniversary of the death of Tycho Brahe, on October 24 in 1601, the Danish astronomer whose dying wish to his assistant, Johannes Kepler, was something Kepler couldn’t fulfill.
