By Beth Milligan | May 9, 2020
Interlochen Center for the Arts is cancelling its 2020 summer concert series, the organization announced Friday.
Interlochen President Trey Devey sent an email to employees and donors announcing the news. "I know how much all of us look forward to concerts on Green Lake," Devey wrote to employees. "Like you, I’ll miss the community and camaraderie that we share at these events and the feeling of excitement building on the Mall before a show. Many of you have put significant effort into building this season and planning for a successful launch, strong sales, and a satisfying patron experience. I want to thank you for your hard work and dedication to supporting what is a critical source of student scholarships and a vital conduit for connecting to many visitors on campus."
Devey concluded his email by noting that "someday soon, Kresge will again be filled with sound and energy. You can count on that." The announcement comes after Interlochen had already cancelled its 2020 summer camp, moving instead to a three-week virtual camp program.Comment
