Students perform in RENT band

May 16, 2016

Under the leadership of Interlochen Director of Music Dr. Kedrik Merwin a house band comprised of current Arts Academy students performed live during the Theatre Department’s production of RENT last weekend.

As fans of RENT will know, music plays in integral role in the show as it veers toward an operetta as opposed to a traditional musical theatre show as much of the script is sang with accompaniment instead of spoken. Needless to say, this challenge was faced head on dutifully by Dr. Merwin and his band.

Congratulations and thank you to Dr. Merwin and our student band on three successful performances!
