Nancy Deneen

Classical Music Host

Nancy Deneen has a background in classical music as a performer and teacher. She is passionate about sharing a variety of music with radio listeners of all ages. When not on the air at IPR, she enjoys the natural beauty and fabulous arts scene in Northwestern Michigan. She is an avid walker - in the summer sun or while wearing snowshoes in January. Nancy spends time in Lake Michigan's waves whenever possible (as long as the water is a reasonable temperature). She loves to attend live performances in our area and when traveling – some favorites for concerts include Interlochen Ensembles of all kinds, and the Traverse Symphony Orchestra. Nancy Deneen lives in Traverse City with her family and pets.
