Playlist of the Month: October 2018

As temperatures cool down in northern Michigan, our Interlochen Arts Academy ensembles are warming up. Get a sneak peek of some of our October performances with this curated Spotify playlist.

This month’s playlist features some jazz standards that you’ll hear at the Oct. 12 Jazz Ensemble concert, as well as classics of the orchestral repertoire to be performed at the Oct. 19 orchestra concert. The Arts Academy Band will prepare you for Halloween with a fun, family-friendly performance that features Eric Whitacre’s “Godzilla Eats Las Vegas.” We’ll also give you a taste of guest artists Vijay Iyer and the Sphinx Virtuosi.
