Imperial Stormtroopers, striking photographs and weird bassoon: this week on the Green Room

May 22, 2015

Imperial Stormtroopers invade!

Imperial Stormtroopers are invading the Cherry Capital Comic Con this weekend - but don't worry; it's just for fun! 

And - photographer Eric Hatch uses long exposures to capture big details in his images, partly because he can't really see the small things.

Plus: a graduating Interlochen student shares her favorite bassoon trick! 


As promised, here's Morgan Davison's poster (also pictured: Mason, her recital partner. And a couple of furry friends.):

Wait, why is it called the Green Room again?

A green room is a space where performers hang out between the dressing room and the stage. It's a place to relax, that usually has a couch and some snacks. So think of the Green Room on Interlochen Public Radio as your backstage pass into the world of the arts each week.

There is some irony with the name. Though IPR constantly hosts artists as they perform live from our very own Studio A, we don't actually have a green room in the building. We don't even have a couch!
