In times like these, it is critical to remain agile and adaptable—qualities that are at the core of artistic training.
This Sunday, June 28, we celebrate the historic launch of our 93rd Camp season through Interlochen Online. First Gathering will be broadcast live from Kresge Auditorium. More than 1,400 students from 22 countries will join us for three weeks of intensive arts exploration via an innovative digital interface.
On June 19, Interlochen released a Juneteenth statement that reiterates the institution’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. “We know that we have much work yet to do. Meaningful change, so desperately needed, must occur at an institution that shapes how thousands of young students perceive the world and one another.” Read the full statement.
NBC News recently featured President Trey Devey and Interlochen Online in a segment about online summer camps. Distinguished guest artists who will work with students this summer include renowned conductor Cristian Măcelaru; musicians from the Detroit Symphony Orchestra; Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre company member Fana Tesfagiorgis (IAA 02-06); Breaking Bad writer, director, and producer Peter Gould; and Tony Award-winning actor Santino Fontana (IAC 99).
Join us online this summer for a series of virtual alumni events! Reunite with your classmates in one of our Sunday night reunions. Grab a copy of Rachel Friedman’s (IAC 93-95) book "And Then We Grew Up: On Creativity, Potential, and the Imperfect Art of Adulthood” and join us on Thursday, July 23, for our Interlochen Alumni Book Club. Show off your knowledge of Interlochen facts during our first-ever Interlochen Trivia Night on Thursday, July 30. You can also join our Interlochen Online students for three beloved Camp traditions: First Gathering (Sunday, June 28), Collage (Saturday, July 18), and “Les Préludes” (Sunday, July 19). We hope you’ll join us for one—or all!—of these amazing experiences.
