This episode of the Interlochen Collection features works inspired by composers' travels abroad.

From Spain, to Rome, to the United States, each work attempts to evoke the music of the space visited, while also incorporating the composers’ own themes and impressions of the place.

All works are played by Interlochen students and campers.
