WYSO 2016 - Week 6 - Higdon, Tchaikovsky, Williams and Les Preludes

Aug 14, 2016

Dancers gather on the roof of the Interlochen Bowl as part of the traditional closer to the camp season, Les Preludes.

Each year, Interlochen Arts Camp becomes home to the World Youth Symphony Orchestra, high-school age musicians working with renowned conductors from all over the world.

In our sixth and final episode of the 2016 season, conductor Jung-Ho Pak conducts the WYSO in Jennifer Higdon's Machine, Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet Overture, and the Olympic Fanfare by John Williams.

In a tradition dating back to 1928, Interlochen Center for the Arts President Jeff Kimpton conducts all the Interlochen Orchestras together in Franz Liszt's Les Preludes.
