Late last month Interlochen Arts Academy vocal students participated in a collaboration with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

Instructor of Voice Laura Osgood Brown, collaborative pianist Susan Snyder and eight voice students travelled to Detroit on Jan. 21 to participate in the orchestra’s Mozart Festival. The students, accompanied by Snyder, performed Opera After Hours, a program of arias, art songs and opera scenes by Mozart.

After the Detroit Symphony Orchestra concert, patrons were invited to enjoy the performance by the Arts Academy vocalists in “The Cube,” a venue attached to Orchestra Hall. Over 300 patrons attended the performance by the Interlochen artists, and gave the musicians positive feedback at the program’s conclusion.

Before returning to campus, the students spent Sunday exploring the Detroit Institute of Art.
