The Interlochen Arts Academy Orchestra performs in Philharmonic Hall at Lincoln Center

On this episode, we revisit a performance given by the Interlochen Arts Academy Orchestra at Lincoln Center.

The student musicians performed in Philharmonic Hall (now David Geffen Hall) in March of 1964.

The concert included a performance of "Through the Looking Glass" by Deems Taylor, narrated by a teenaged Linda Hunt (now an Academy Award-winning star of film and television).
