Michael Thurber – composer, musician and Interlochen alum – experiments with music. He bends genre, pushing beyond conventional notions of classical music. Oh, and he's a YouTube star.

This week, Thurber will do something he's never done before– debut a piece he's written for a full orchestra. And he'll do it at the Interlochen Center for the Arts, using Interlochen students, and recorded live by NPR's From The Top.


This year, NPR’s From the Top commissioned a new musical work from Interlochen Arts Academy Alum Michael Thurber. It's designed to feature the next generation of classical musicians. 

It's an all-Interlochen line up on the show this week, featuring excerpts from the concerto performed in Corson Auditorium with the Interlochen Arts Academy Orchestra. This show also includes solos from several current students.
