Sound the Call
Thank you for joining all of those who hold Interlochen dear in our campaign to CREATE AMAZING. You have set the stage for Interlochen’s second century as a beacon of arts and culture and leader in arts education.
You Gave Young Artists the Opportunity to Flourish
Interlochen students discover, often for the first time in their lives, a community of like-minded individuals who match their artistic passion. They meet teachers who unlock their potential to create at the highest level. They experience opportunities not available in their hometowns. They arrive on campus with dreams, and they leave with the ability to achieve them. Thank you for creating amazing people and inspiring the next generation of artists and creative leaders. More
You Helped Complete the Revitalization of Interlochen
Nestled among stately pines and glacial lakes, Interlochen is a place where artists find a community of like-minded individuals who nurture their talent and drive. It’s a place that inspires audiences and listeners with exemplary arts and culture. It’s a place that unites everyone through the arts. Thank you for creating facilities that are worthy of the artists and the aspirations within. Because of your support, Interlochen can achieve its mission of inspiring and nurturing the future of every artistic endeavor. More
You Enriched the Interlochen Experience
The world’s longest-running summer arts camp, the first arts boarding high school, a charter member of NPR—thank you for helping Interlochen be a leader in innovative programs that push the boundaries of the classroom, the airwaves and the stage. More
You Supported All Aspects of Interlochen
Thank you for increasing scholarship support for talented, motivated students. You also allowed Interlochen to meet critical needs and explore new opportunities like the Arts Academy Orchestra and Dance Company’s 2016 critically acclaimed performance at the 2016 NY Phil Biennial. Thank you for creating amazing opportunity and supporting the Interlochen Annual Fund and/or including Interlochen in your estate plans. More
