Interlochen, MI / 2

This week, Christopher O’Riley joins some of the best young musicians from the Interlochen Center for the Arts, the jewel of Midwestern summer music programs.

You’ll meet a 16-year-old violist who finds that donning a ballroom gown helps relieve rehearsal frustration and you’ll hear a particularly vibrant flutist play Eldin Burton’s Sonatina for Flute and Piano. Also, we’ll introduce you to a bassoonist who excels in so many areas and endeavors, it might just make you want to throw in the towel!
