The Interlochen Arts Academy Orchestra is comprised of high-school aged musicians attending Interlochen Arts Academy. The Academy Orchestra reads and rehearses numerous works in regular daily sessions, and presents approximately eight major concerts each year on the Interlochen campus. Students frequently collaborate with renowned guest artists and conductors, performing major works of the symphonic repertoire, concerti and new music. The Academy Orchestra also performs with choir and other ensembles, and is the resident orchestra for Interlochen’s annual ballet production. Recent repertoire has included Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7; selections from Janáček’s Sinfonietta; Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto; Prokofiev’s Lieutenant Kijé Suite; Ives’s The Unanswered Question; Mendelssohn’s Hebrides; Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite No. 1; Debussy’s Clair du Lune and Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Suite.
