Interlochen Arts Camp

Jessica Masse has been tuning and caring for pianos at Interlochen Center for the Arts for eight years.

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.”

The World Youth Symphony Orchestra performed July 2, 2017 in Kresge Auditorium. Karina Canellakis conducted works by Adams, Mendelssohn, and Ravel. The program was broadcast live on Classical IPR.

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. Alon Goldstein is the guest soloist performing Saint-Saëns' Second Piano Concerto. The concert will be broadcast live on Classical IPR Sunday at 8 p.m.

Week Four of the World Youth Symphony Orchestra at Interlochen features guest conductor Cristian Macelaru, Music Director of the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music.

This week's concert features Dvorak's Carnival Overture and Brahms Symphony No. 2. Macelaru - a former member of the WYSO himself - had some fascinating things to say about Brahms, Dvorak, and their musical ideas of happiness.

Listen below to hear more, and to find out why Macelaru wants to make t-shirts that say, "Keep Dvorak Weird!"

Join us for the concert live on Classical IPR, Sunday night at 8pm.
