Thanks to the generous gifts of our donors, hundreds of aspiring artists were able to attend Interlochen Arts Camp and Interlochen Arts Academy in 2019. Here are some of the amazing moments you helped make possible. May the year ahead be full of opportunity and art!
Interlochen's concertmaster series allows students in Interlochen's various music programs to work with, learn from and directly interact with some of the world’s leading conductors, composers and concertmasters. The results are often reciprocated, with the guest artists gaining as much from the experience as the students.
This video features remarks by Bill Church, director of the Comparative Arts program and instructor of theater, during the Opening Convocation of the 49th year of Interlochen Arts Academy. Originally recorded and streamed live on Saturday, September 4, 2010.
The Nutcracker has become a holiday tradition for many, and this year's performance at Interlochen was bigger and better than ever. Our Presents team took a behind the scenes look at just some of the many preparations that go into making a performance like this a success.
Students each year audition and are chosen to perform as a part of this tradition of showcasing each art form in a fast paced collection of work. See what it's like being a performer and the thrill of being a part of this showcase event.
