Interlochen Public Radio

Dear Classical IPR listeners,

As many of you know, 88.7 FM has unexpectedly stopped transmitting. We are sorry for the problem which was entirely unexpected at a site we rebuilt just two years ago. Since the transmission failed on the evening of December 16, we have been working hard to get the station back up and running. We identified the issue as a malfunction in our radio tower’s antenna array, which will need to be dismantled and rebuilt by a specialized crew. Unfortunately, snow and ice have made it unsafe for our crew to climb the tower to do this work, despite several attempts. 

Dublin Guitar Quartet and Roomful of Teeth will perform in the Dendrinos Chapel Recital Hall at Interlochen tonight at 7:30 p.m. Information on tickets is available here.

The quartet visited Interlochen Public Radio's Studio A along with the artistic director of Roomful of Teeth, Brad Wells.
