Interlochen Public Radio and host Dr. Amanda Sewell have recently launched an archival music series, The Interlochen Collection.
The Interlochen Collection celebrates Interlochen’s long tradition of nurturing young musicians by sharing recordings by Interlochen Arts Camp and Arts Academy students from across the decades. Each episode also features tales from Interlochen’s history and updates on Interlochen’s notable alumni.
The Interlochen Collection airs every Sunday at 8 p.m. EDT on Classical IPR. Many past episodes are available to stream on-demand through the IPR website and mobile app.
The archival recordings heard on this program are available thanks to generous support from our listeners, The Association for Recorded Sound Collections, and the Hamer D. and Phyllis C. Shafer Foundation.
