This summer, Interlochen Arts Camp welcomed 24 students to its Advanced String Quartet program. The students in these six quartets recently visited IPR's Studio A to perform some of the music they learned this summer.
Lenny Schranze, the faculty coordinator of the program, also discussed the Advanced String Quartet program with IPR.
