Every spring, as the school year draws to a close, Interlochen Arts Academy students share their work in recitals, concerts and other showcases.

They can't be on campus this year, but the Interlochen Arts Academy Festival will still happen - just from a distance.

Join Classical IPR on Friday, May 22 starting at 8 a.m. as we help celebrate this year's Arts Academy students. Their musical performances from this past academic year will be broadcast throughout the day.

The music will include performances that took place at the Academy before students were sent home due to the pandemic, as well as music that students have recorded themselves since returning home. 

See the day's broadcast schedule below. All air times are approximate and subject to change.
