I taught here for almost 30 years. Most of it was as the Director of the Creative Writing Program. It is an oasis, a place to be who and what you are. I had some of the best students in the world, and believe that Intetlochen's dedication to craft and artistic development has no equal.

Saw "A Flea in her Ear" Side-splitting fun comedy, French Flavor, slightly Risque, but absolutely well done. All student cast, great lighting and special/sound effects, such enthusiasm!

Interlochen is high on our list with each return visit to NW Michigan. This campus is beautiful every season of the year. This past weekend was not the norm as the summer campers were gone, and the incoming students were slowly arriving...it was much quieter than usual. So there was not the typical buzz of students and staff in sight.... More

Attended the Pat Benatar, Melissa Ethridge concert at Kresge auditorium here. Beautiful lake view and great seating. Friendly and low-key, small, intimate venue. I'll definitely be following their concert lineups from now on.

We saw Lindsay Stirling play here live and it was incredible. Not a bad seat in the house. And you have the beautiful lake right behind it.

My first time back since being a camper in high school. We went to the collage concert. Perfect concert for young kids. Saw a little of every art.

While camping at the state park, we purchased tickets in advance for the last night of the run. Outdoors, under the stars, very well done. We had great seats (although the front row is not the very best, you'll want to be back at least 5 rows.)

This is a beautiful place to see a concert. Open air with Green Lake in the background. Great place to picnic and tail gate before the concert. Very friendly and organized group of volunteers.
