Interlochen Arts Camp just wrapped up for the season. During the summer, over 230 pianos are on campus for the students. That’s a lot of work for a piano tuner.

“The only thing I can compare it to is having an infant,” says Jessica Masse. “And always having to just be at their beck and call.”

Conductor Carlos Izcaray conducts the World Youth Symphony Orchestra this Sunday, July 30th. The program includes The Chairman Dances by John Adams and La Mer by Claude Debussy.
