Apply: MYSO JOANNE W. HULCE MERIT SCHOLARSHIP,
INTERLOCHEN ARTS CAMP HIGH SCHOOL MUSIC PROGRAM

 

The Interlochen Arts Camp (IAC) High School Music Summer Program is one of the most prestigious summer music camps in the country. Located on a beautifully wooded 1,200 acres in northwest Michigan, the 6-week program enables high school age students to work with an internationally-known faculty of musicians and conductors.

If you are interested in applying to Interlochen Arts Camp, please discuss this with your private teacher and your MYSO music director for guidance on how to prepare your audition material. Please contact Artistic Administrator Don Sipe for more information.

The Joanne W. Hulce Merit Scholarship supports MYSO musicians who have demonstrated the capacity to succeed in the exceptional opportunities made possible at the Interlochen Arts Camp High School Music Summer Program. One MYSO musician will be selected to receive a scholarship for full tuition (up to $10,000 maximum) for this program.

IAC offers merit scholarships and financial aid. We encourage MYSO applicants to apply to IAC for this support, in addition to the Hulce Scholarship which is intended for one MYSO recipient.
