Summer Alumni Events 2019

Come back to Interlochen this summer - our treat! 

The welcome mat is out all summer long at Interlochen, and we want to see you!

This summer, we’re offering all alumni two free tickets to one of the following performances:

    • World Youth Symphony Orchestra on June 30, July 7, July 14, July 21, or July 28
    • Interlochen Shakespeare Festival performance of "Richard III" on July 5
    • "Collage" on July 9

But that’s not all: we’re also planning special dessert receptions and opportunities for you to engage with staff, faculty, guest artists, and other alumni at each performance. In addition, you’re invited to join us for A First Gathering and a trip to the Melody Freeze on June 23 and a farewell bonfire after Les Préludes on Aug. 4.

Whenever you can make it, you are always welcome at Interlochen!
