Interlochen 2015 Arts Festival Schedule!

Drum roll please … Here it is, at long last: The Interlochen Center for the Arts 2015 Arts Festival line-up. Guaranteed to make your summer,  the much-anticipated grouping of summer performances includes many favorites from years gone by at Interlochen, including Harry Connick, Jr., the Beach Boys, The Doobie Brothers, Michael McDonald, Boz Scaggs and more. New to the Kresge stage are O.A.R., Pink Martini and more.

This season, many student, classical and theatrical performances will be connected to much loved American composer Aaron Copland. Interlochen Center for the Arts presents a multi-disciplinary festival celebrating the composer’s visits to Interlochen in the 1960’s and 1970. Highlights include performances by the Emerson String Quartet, violinist James Ehnes, soprano Christine Brewer, the Martha Graham Dance Company, concert performances of Copland’s only opera, “The Tender Land,” and much more.

Tickets for the Interlochen Arts Festival will go on sale to the general public on April 24 at 9 a.m. The fastest, easiest way to get tickets is online at tickets.interlochen.org.
