Interlochen students hit the national stage with From the Top

Mar 10, 2015

Interlochen's "From the Top" will be aired on Classical IPR on April 25th, and 26th.

This year, NPR’s From the Top commissioned a new musical work from Interlochen Arts Academy Alum Michael Thurber. It's designed to feature the next generation of classical musicians. 

It's an all-Interlochen line up on the show this week, featuring excerpts from the concerto performed in Corson Auditorium with the Interlochen Arts Academy Orchestra. This show also includes solos from several current students.

Thurber’s concerto is a lively and fun adaptation of a 19th Century novel by Alexandre Dumas called “The Three Musketeers: A play for instruments.” Listen to the full concerto here. The live audience in Interlochen was treated to a work that would later be called “worthy of Dumas” by the Boston Globe.
