The Wild Rose Moon Radio Hour airs on WVPE each month, and is archived at https://www.wvpe.org/topic/wild-rose-moon-radio-hour. Your gift will be used to provide stipends to support the talent, technical staff and volunteers, and will help keep this landmark program on the air.
The To the Moon and Back series offers a behind-the-scenes look at the motivations, influences and creative process of national and regional artists that appear at the Wild Rose Moon. This program is produced on an entirely volunteer basis, and your generous gift will be used in the form of stipends to pay for meals and transportation costs the crew, and will help to bring these intimate interviews and performances from our stage to the world.
Open Mic is a community stage for acoustic music and spoken word, and features a wide range of styles and skill levels. Your donation will be used to provide a small stipend for our volunteers, and purchase snacks for our guests.
Moonlight allows viewers to interactively experience the art and artists of our region, from home. Watch performances and interviews with area musicians, poets and storytellers, and react to them and interact in real time. Your gift will show your thanks to the volunteers that operate the MEVO camera system, mix the sound, and develop the intriguing questions that are asked of our guests.
Project Moonbeam is a showcase to help grow area talent in the area of "show-making"-creating and directing a play, variety show, dance or storytelling presentation. Your much-needed contributions go toward helping the staff volunteers support our budding community producers.
Jam Nights provide an opportunity for all area musicians to gather and play music together in a very laid-back, relaxed atmosphere. Your gift helps keep the music flowing by funding refreshments, promoting the program around the area, and tips for the staff.
Wild Rose Moon offers a variety of workshops that provide a fun and educational creative outlet for the community. One of the most popular is the Comedy Improv class. The participants learn new communication skills and rediscover a deep sense of play. Since this workshop is free and open to the public, your donation goes a long way toward keeping the laughs coming.
Interns at the Wild Rose Moon benefit from relevant work experience in a professional setting, and are afforded the opportunity to contribute to regional arts and culture. These are unpaid interns, and students sometimes struggle with making ends meet. Your gift will help provide gas money and lunches to help a promising young student to get a good start on a creative career.
The Wild Rose Moon performance series features singer-songwriters or bands. These performers have an ambitious touring life and are busy promoting their careers through albums, shows, and an active web presence. Your generous gift will provide them with backstage snacks in the "White Room", and help us promote the shows with posters.
