My teenage actress daughter auditioned for and attended the summer acting camp this year. I knew nothing about Interlochen beforehand. Her hometown high school drama teacher on the East Coast had strongly recommended it. The place is fantastic, in a gorgeous setting, with extraordinary, state-of-the-art venues, more than 10 performance spaces, and thousands of talented students working hard to learn... More

A beautiful outdoor amphatheather with a view of Green Lake. A wonderful venue to see a performance. Easy parking, reasonable site lines nicely covered for inclement weather. The major problem relates to late arrivals. The ushers stand in the middle of the walkway, blocking the view of the stage, while studying the late patrons tickets for minutes at a time.... More

I attended the arts camp this past summer, and let me just say this- It's an experience you'll never want to forget. The concerts, the attractive scenery, the people you meet... The possibilities for a good time are endless. I highly suggest sending your child or children t the camp at some point :)

Last month we went to Interlocken to see Boz Scaggs and it was great. The parking was free, the sound was good, and the venue was professional. They don't serve any liquor onsite so people were tailgating before heading in and in a courtyard just outside the entrance to the seating area they had places to buy coffee, soft serve... More

The beauty of location and creative expressions, which abound, make this an extraordinary place to visit and enjoy the arts. The summer camp requires auditioning for acceptance and there are gifted youth from the U.S., and many other countries, who perform or display their creative work at the end of the camp.

You can't miss with a theater production, a musical, a ballet recital, art show or reading here. Everything, whether it's performed by the students or outside artists, is top notch.

We happened across this amazing place whilst visiting Traverse City MI. The Academy centres on the performing arts and academic studies for highly talented young people. The centre itself is wonderful and even though we had not planned to visit we found ourselves there for several hours. If you go when the summer schools are taking place you will be... More

The concert venue is wonderful for listening and viewing the concert. It is possible to stay in cottages right on the grounds. The concert is dry, and even worse is that only water was allowed in the concert area.
