Interlochen names new president

Mark Lyons

Interlochen Center for the Arts has chosen a new president. Trey Devey will leave the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra next year to come to northern Michigan. Devey has been president of the symphony orchestra since 2009 and led it out of a severe financial crisis.


Devey, age 45, has vacationed near Traverse City his entire life. He has a masters degree from The Wharton School of Business, and he studied music and played trombone at Northern Illinois University.


Watch a presentation from Trey Devey about the LUMENOCITY project he discussed in the interview with IPR.

Peter Payette is the Executive Director of Interlochen Public Radio.
