UMS on TV!
Way back in January (it seems especially way back on this beautiful 63-degree day!), UMS was approached by Michigan Productions about being profiled on a TV show called “Out of the Blue” which airs on the Big 10 Network.
Of course we were really excited about being on TV, and having a chance to share what UMS does with an even wider audience. What followed was three weeks of taping at concerts and special events, interviews with UMS staff like Ken Fischer and Michael Kondziolka, and a look into UMS’s extensive historical archive. Chris McElroy was our fantastic producer for the segment and, when it was all over, we asked him what impressions of UMS he was taking away now that he’d had the complete behind-the-scenes experience. We caught him for a few minutes on video here:
We haven’t seen the segment yet (it premieres today at 3:00 pm), but we’ve heard from Chris and others on his team that it’s really great!
