In a scathing letter, several Michigan legislators urged the state Department of Natural Resources to renew all commercial fishing licenses and permits from 2020.

That’s after the DNR announced new restrictions that close the fishery for part of the year and limit the depth where fishers can catch whitefish to 80 feet.

This week on IPR's Kids Commute, a special edition by request for Kids Commuter Finn - it's Harry Potter Week!

We'll hear music for each of the Hogwarts houses and find out how to get into their common rooms.

Which Hogwarts house suits you best? Let us know! We'll let you know how many of your fellow Kids Commuters are  in your chosen house at the end of the week!

The House with the most Kids Commuters in it wins The House Cup (bragging rights!).

Michigan Legacy Art Park

Classical IPR has created on-demand listening to accompany a few of the sculptures at Michigan Legacy Art Park

Inspired by specific works of art, Classical IPR chose pieces of music that we thought reflected the aesthetic of each sculpture.

See the sculptures and listen to the music below.

If you can, travel to the Art Park yourself and listen to the music while experiencing the sculptures in person. 


Note: the work of art is shown first, followed by the accompanying audio file.

  

Join us for an hour of beautiful, relaxing music every weeknight at 10 p.m. on Classical IPR. New episodes of Repose air every Saturday at 10 p.m.

Colors of the Land - Dancing In The Moonlight

The Wolf Moon occurs this week on Thursday, January 28th, so I’d like to talk about the spiritual mystery of what I’ll call a “wolf initiation” as it can be imagined through the Russian fairy tale of the Firebird.


On Monday, January 21, the nationally syndicated program Performance Today will feature music performed and recorded at Interlochen Center for the Arts.

Listen during the 11 a.m. hour of the program on Classical IPR to hear the ensemble Russian Renaissance in a 2019 recital presented at the Dendrinos Chapel and Recital Hall.
