Give to Interlochen
Interlochen Center for the Arts has announced the completion of its CREATE AMAZING comprehensive fundraising campaign as of October 31, 2018. The Campaign has laid the groundwork for Interlochen's centennial in ten years.
"The success of this Campaign illustrates the impact of Interlochen and the arts as a local and regional economic driver," says Interlochen Trustee Casey Cowell. "Interlochen is a vital community asset that strengthens access to arts education for students in Michigan and around the globe."
In 2018, Interlochen distributed the most financial aid in its history, in part through the Create Amazing Opportunities Challenge. Made possible by Interlochen Trustee and internationally respected economist Dr. Mohamed A. El-Erian, this challenge raised over $1.7 million and helped an additional 120 students attend Interlochen this summer.
"Through this new Music Building, we have the opportunity to create an even more exceptional environment for the world's future musicians," says Interlochen Director of Music, Kedrik Merwin. "With new recording studios and large rehearsal halls, Interlochen can share more frequent and varied performances with our northern Michigan community, including through Interlochen Public Radio broadcasts, as well as throughout the world with the embedded high speed video conferencing technology."
