President Trey Devey shares how Arts Camp and Arts Academy traditions are pivoting to online platforms.
We are excited to announce the launch of Interlochen Online, a digital alternative to our traditional summer arts camp. Through Interlochen Online, students will enjoy Interlochen’s world-class arts education from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Programs are available in music, dance, theatre, visual art, creative writing, general arts, and film for students in grades 2-12. Learn more about this exciting initiative.
In April, Interlochen Arts Academy Director of Choirs John Bragle coordinated a virtual ensemble featuring students and faculty of all instruments and voice types. Conducted by Interlochen Arts Academy Wind Symphony Director Dr. Matthew Schlomer, musicians recorded their parts to the Interlochen Theme. Director of Music Production and Engineering Marc Lacuesta and Interlochen’s Presentations team have synced these videos to create a unified, long-distance ensemble. Watch the poignant performance.
On Monday, May 4, Anthony Davis’s new opera, The Central Park Five, won the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Music. The opera premiered on June 15, 2019 at the Long Beach Opera with Interlochen Arts Academy Orchestra Conductor Dr. Leslie B. Dunner conducting. Alumni Bernard Holcomb (IAA 00-02) and Cedric Berry (IAC/NMC 85, 87, IAA 88-90) starred in the performance as Kevin Richardson and Yusef Salaam, respectively. Congratulations to Dr. Dunner, Holcomb, and Berry for their contributions to this award-winning work.
There are no events in the next seven days.
