Music Spotlight 3 was originally an online concert presented by Interlochen Arts Academy music students this fall. 

On Classical IPR in Concert this week, we'll share their performances! 

The program features brass ensembles, mixed chamber and more. 

Due to COVID-19, a creative approach is necessary for artists to find ways to make music together safely - and our young artists rose to the challenge!

All our performances were in safe, socially-distanced settings.

Recordings in this broadcast were engineered by Michael Culler.

Music Spotlight 2 was a concert originally presented online earlier this fall by music students at Interlochen Arts Academy.

On Classical IPR in Concert this week we'll share the performances from Music Spotlight 2.

The program features instumental soloists, choral ensembles, chamber groups and jazz combos.

Because of public health and safety concerns in 2020, Interlochen Arts Academy forged a new path for its annual Collage concert. 

The program was presented online, with recordings made while masked and socially distanced.

On this week's Classical IPR in Concert, you'll hear musical selections from this year's Collage and a Vocal Arts Showcase.

Tune in Friday at 8 p.m., Sunday at noon, or listen below at any time.

Since the 1940s, Hugh Downs has been known to most Americans as a television host on programs including "Tonight: Starring Jack Paar," "Today" and "20/20."

Downs, who died July 1 at the age of 99, was also a composer of classical music. He hosted the PBS classical music program "Live from Lincoln Center" during the 1990s.

"My entire life is a set of circumstances that happened while I was making plans for other things," says conductor Cristian Măcelaru.

Măcelaru's entire career has been shaped by a series of accidents and coincidences. 

It started in the late 1990s when he thought he was applying to attend Interlochen Arts Camp for the summer. He inadvertently chose the wrong application form, and Măcelaru found himself admitted to Interlochen Arts Academy with a full scholarship. 

This week, Classical IPR in Concert features performances by the Interlochen Arts Academy Orchestra from the 2019-2020 school year.

Leslie B. Dunner conducted the Symphony No. 2 by Johannes Brahms in the fall of 2019 and the Symphony No. 5 by Dmitri Shostakovich in early 2020. This episode also includes selections from The Sleeping Beauty by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

Hear Classical IPR in Concert Friday at 8.p.m. or Sunday at noon. You can listen below at any time.

Summer is going to look and sound a lot different at Interlochen Center for the Arts this year. The usual cacophony of music coming from students practicing their instruments all around campus will not happen.

 

Last week, Interlochen canceled its traditional summer arts camp experience due to COVID-19 concerns. Instead, the summer camp will transition to online, virtual instruction.

 

Interlochen Center for the Arts

For the first time since 1928, Interlochen’s annual arts camp will not take place in person.

Instead, camp activities will move online with a series of three-week programs in what is being called Interlochen Online Arts Camp. The virtual courses will commence June 28 to July 19.
