If you’re a student at Berklee, you’ve probably heard about the recent acquisition of Power Station studios, read the press release, watched the video and thought “this is awesome but what does this mean for us?” As an MP&E student, I wanted to know what sort of opportunities we would get to utilize the space in order to expand our careers in New York, and where other technology majors such as EPD and CWP would fit into the vision.

Friday, March 16th @ 8 PM EST! Tune in to birnCORE for a live broadcast from The Red Room @ Cafe 939 featuring Ingrid Andress.
Ingrid Andress is a country singer-songwriter who splits time between Nashville and Los Angeles. She grew up on a wide range of music, captivated by vocalists from Whitney Houston to Sarah McLachlan and Robert Plant. But it was the country sensibilities of Joni Mitchell, Faith Hill, the Dixie Chicks, and even John Denver that stole her heart and fired her imagination. As a result, her country songs are unguarded and raw, focusing on her gutsy-but-vulnerable voice and the feelings pulled from her wanderer’s soul.
