This year's Interlochen Arts Academy students have just completed a year like no other.

From their arrival on campus back in August to the end of the school year, they maintained rigorous masking and distancing all while attending classes and making art and music.

This Academy year draws to a close with the traditional Interlochen Arts Academy Festival, featuring performances and presentations from students in all arts areas.

Like most events in the past year, Festival will look and feel a little different. Student performances are closed to the public but can be enjoyed live on Classical IPR.

Listen on Thursday, May 27 and Friday, May 28 as we showcase some of the Academy students' performances live.

Throughout both days, Classical IPR will feature outstanding Interlochen Arts Academy student performances from this past Academy year and from the archives.

See the tentative schedule of live broadcasts below.

8 p.m.: Interlochen Arts Academy mixed ensembles

Friday, May 28
