From the publisher: “Tucked away in the northern woods of Michigan is the Interlochen Center for the Arts. Conceived as a summer camp for talented high school musicians, Interlochen now ranks as one of the world's most renowned schools for the arts. Dean Boal, president of Interlochen from 1989 to 1995, presents a richly detailed and never-before-told story of this home for the arts. This thoroughly researched presentation offers an in-depth view of the school from its modest beginnings under Joseph Maddy to the present. Boal describes the turbulent years with union problems, the Karl Haas years, the school's relationship with the University of Michigan, and the famous artists who consider teaching at Interlochen to be a very special experience. Archival photographs of the founders, artists, and students complement this engaging story of a Michigan gem. Dean Boal is president emeritus of the Interlochen Center for the Arts. He was vice president of cultural programming and program services for National Public Radio, in Washington, D.C., and founding president of the St. Louis Conservatory and Community Schools for the Arts.”
