Michael Thurber Master Class
Composer, performer and Interlochen alumnus Michael Thurber is here on campus for Friday's recording of "From the Top." An incredibly versatile musician, Thurber was the first undergraduate to be accepted into both the classical and jazz divisions of The Juilliard School. He composed a new piece that will be premiered during the "From the Top" recording in Corson Auditorium. His career path is far from traditional, but he is a great example of a new breed of professional musician who has thrived in the rapidly shifting music industry.
He spoke with students on Wednesday, and was joined by his colleagues Charles Yang, Kris Bowers and Mark Dover, who will be featured in the premiere performance of his new piece, "The Three Musketeers."
