Horizontal TabsDescription This concert celebrates the launch of the partnership between Interlochen Arts Academy and the New York Philharmonic with two weeks of intensive activities, Jan. 17–28, 2017. In the first week, four New York Philharmonic musicians, all Interlochen alumni, are in residence on the school's Michigan campus to engage in educational activities — including lessons, master classes, mock auditions, and rehearsals — as well as this performance in which students and faculty of Interlochen Center for the Arts join with the Philharmonic players. Next week, 19 select students will travel to New York to attend a New York Philharmonic rehearsal and concert, take part in cultural activities, and, on Jan. 28 at Lincoln Center's Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse, give a chamber concert featuring works by 20th century masters Poulenc and Shostakovich, as well as those by young American composers with links to Interlochen. This partnership builds on the collaboration during the 2016 NY PHIL BIENNIAL, when the New York Philharmonic presented young performers from the Interlochen Arts Academy — the only high school outside New York City to work with the New York Philharmonic — at David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center. Through projects likes these, both organizations demonstrate their belief in cultivating today's composers and in inspiring tomorrow's professional musicians.
