In Studio A with the Interlochen Arts Camp high school wind quintet
When storms forced the quintet to shelter in place after their recording session, they had no trouble entertaining themselves.
An energetic group of student musicians, their supportive teacher, great music and a severe weather event made for an interesting day at Interlochen Public Radio.
Instructor Doug Spaniol and his high school ensemble arrived at Interlochen Public Radio to record in Studio A. They played La Cheminée du Roi René, Op. 205 by Darius Milhaud.
The ensemble's members are Tieran Holmes (flute and piccolo), Kyle Cho (oboe), Diego Flórez-Saavedra (clarinet), Madeline Zhang (bassoon) and Ashley Chiang (horn).
The group has adopted the name Where's Diego. That's because "Where's Diego?" was a common question among the friends early in the season. Kyle explained that Diego was always late.
Just when it was time to leave after their recording session, powerful storms passed through the area and campers were told to seek shelter.
Interlochen Public Radio's Studio A is a safe spot to ride out severe weather, so they stayed here at the station until the storm passed.
While sheltering in Studio A, the students listened to music, decorated themselves and their instrument cases with IPR stickers and made each other and their hosts laugh.
One student even shared his stash of camp ice cream tokens with the rest.
