Today, April 18, 2016, commemorates the 50th anniversary of the passing of Joe Maddy— the founder of Interlochen Center for the Arts. Maddy passed away on this day in 1966 at the age of 74.

Joe Maddy was born in Wellington, Kansas in 1891. He grew up playing in string quartets, but wanted to learn more about playing the violin and viola. He quit school after eighth grade to pursue his musical passion.

Then, in the late 1920’s, Joe Maddy was asked to form a national high school orchestra, for the Music Supervisors National Conference in Dallas.

Recently, I went for a walk with Coggin Heeringa, instructor of Environmental Studies at Interlochen Arts Camp. We were looking for sassafras, which is native to Michigan.


"What I Did this Summer"

Sep 26, 2014

  When many of us were younger, Fall meant back to school, and writing a theme about how we spent the summer.  This month on Radio Collage, we turn the tables:  it's the teachers who'll be "writing the theme", or in this case, performing. We'll hear music of Beethoven, Debussy and Mozart, along with lesser known composers like Bill Potts and Pierre-Max Duboix.  As an added treat, we'll be listening to some unusual arrangements and ensembles.


  This edition of Radio Collage features excerpts from the 2014 Interlochen Arts Camp "Collage" show, along with performances recorded at a few of the other concerts that take place during the Camp.  There's music by Mendelssohn, Duke Ellington and Brahms, a bit of Shakespeare, and original works by students from the Singer/Songwriter and Creative Writing programs.
