Detroit Symphony musicians to lead Interlochen masterclasses via Zoom

Posted on: April 23, 2021

“This summer, Detroit Symphony Orchestra members will lead masterclasses for each orchestral instrument for students of the Interlochen Arts Camp,” reads an unsigned article in Wednesday’s (4/21) Violin Channel. “The masterclasses will take place via Zoom from July 30-31 and will be available to students studying at both the Music Center at Interlochen as well as the online summer session. The Detroit Symphony Orchestra has been working with Interlochen since 1926, when Detroit’s Orchestra Hall hosted the National High School Honors Orchestra. This was the ensemble to evolve and found the orchestra of Interlochen Arts Camp. It has been a long-term and collaborative affiliation that both parties are excited to continue for the 94th season. ‘For young musicians, there’s nothing like the motivation and inspiration sparked by a world-class teaching artist,’ Trey Devey, Interlochen Center for the Arts President, said. ‘We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with the DSO this summer.’ ” DSO Vice President and General Manager Erik Rönmark said, “Our musicians look forward to working with [Interlochen] campers virtually this year, and we look forward to future summers when we can gather in person.”
