Annual Report to Donors 2008 - Interlochen Center for the Arts


Annual Report Programs, Partnerships and Collaborations The Future of Cinema International Film Festival provided a setting for high school filmmakers to meet professionals and peers, screen work and discuss trends and new developments in cinema, while creating a greater understanding of a quickly evolving art form. Ninety young filmmakers from around the world shared dramatic creative work with eager students and community members. The program included presentations by screenwriter Ivan Raimi, who helped develop the stories for Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2; Interlochen alumna Holly Wren Spaulding, writer and producer for the movie FLOW: For Love Of Water ; and Arts Academy alumnus F. Hudson Miller, one of the most sought after sound engineers working in film today. Participants also viewed the film War Dance and interacted in a live videoconference with director Sean Fine. Interlochen’s second biennial Conference on Creative Writing featured National Book Award-winning author Barry Lopez. The conference brought more than 100 writers to campus for workshops, readings and presentations on the art and craft of writing. Interlochen’s year-round performance program took on a new name and a new look this year. Interlochen Presents became the umbrella name for the four major program components: Summer Arts Festival, fall-spring Performing Arts Series, Arts Academy and Arts Camp student performances. New to the Summer Arts Festival this year was a professional Shakespeare theatre festival – Interlochen alumni and summer faculty who are working actors across the country presented Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night to sold-out houses. The program is an important addition to the summer festival lineup, and will expand in 2009. A new partnership with Yamaha Corporation, the world’s largest musical instrument manufacturer, brought acclaimed hornist Jeff Nelsen to campus for a recital and master class. Yamaha is now a national sponsor for Interlochen’s Summer Arts Festival, and also provides clinics and master classes from its array of performing artists. New to the Summer Arts Festival this year was a professional Shakespeare theatre festival 5

Annual Report Programs, Partnerships and Collaborations Interlochen Public Radio was honored to receive an extraordinary number of awards at the 2008 meeting of the Michigan Association of Broadcasters. IPR received nine awards for outstanding achievement in reporting, and was named “Public Radio Station of the Year.” The station is poised for growth, having applied for and been awarded permits from the FCC for two new frequencies in northwest Michigan (in Harbor Springs and Manistee). This will allow IPR to triple the geographic scope of its award winning news service, mirroring the coverage of our classical music service. While the permits from the FCC were free, building the necessary transmitters, repeaters and towers will require more than $250,000. A campaign is underway to raise these funds so that all of northwestern Michigan can benefit from the IPR network. In October 2007, the Interlochen board of trustees created the President’s Task Force on Diversity to help increase the number of students and faculty of color on the Interlochen campus. While overall minority enrollment has been increasing, Interlochen wants to be sure that our on-campus population matches the diversity of the national population, providing access for all students regardless of background. The task force, chaired by Judge Kurtis Wilder of the Michigan Court of Appeals and president Jeffrey Kimpton, has selected Detroit and Chicago for pilot initiatives, cities where Interlochen has existing partnerships and a diverse alumni base. A series of events are planned for the coming year. Strengthening a growing international arts exchange, Interlochen president Jeffrey Kimpton, director of music Michael Albaugh and director of theatre David Montee traveled to Shanghai, China in April as guests of the Shanghai Conservatory – China’s largest and oldest professional school of music. Conservatory leaders had visited the Interlochen campus for a week during the 2007 Interlochen Arts Camp, and this trip allowed Interlochen to become familiar with the Conservatory and its programs. The two institutions are joining together for a partnership that will include guest lectures, faculty, student and ensemble exchanges, and touring. One year ago, the board of trustees identified campus safety and security as a priority issue. During the last year we invested in a state-of-the-art whole campus generator program to keep our campus infrastructure and business systems running in the case of a major loss of power. This year, working with the State of Michigan, the Office of Homeland Security, Michigan State Police and local law enforcement, we practiced “locking down” the campus and enhanced our security force. The installation of a new phone system significantly enhanced our ability to communicate with the campus community in the event of an emergency. Strengthening a growing international arts exchange, Interlochen traveled to Shanghai, China 6
