On July 7, the Organ Scholar will be the featured soloist as the Interlochen Philharmonic presents a performance of Camille Saint-Saëns’ Symphony No. 3 under the baton of Adam Glaser.
The Interlochen Organ Scholar spends six weeks studying organ at Interlochen Arts Camp, and will participate in several unique performance opportunities.
This summer, the Organ Scholar will be the featured soloist as the Interlochen Philharmonic presents a performance of Camille Saint-Saëns’ Symphony No. 3. Often referred to as “the organ symphony,” Symphony No. 3 features the organ prominently in two of its four movements. The Organ Scholar will also perform any additional organ parts for the World Youth Symphony Orchestra and World Youth Wind Symphony.
The Organ Scholar will also have the opportunity to assist in one of the many weekly worship services offered both on campus and in neighboring Traverse City. The Organ Scholar will work closely with faculty to prepare all of the service music, including hymns and anthem accompaniments.
Students attending both three-week sessions of the high school organ summer program are eligible for the Organ Scholar position and scholarship.
To be considered for this position, applicants must submit:
- A recording of a hymn, preferably in a live situation with congregational singing.
- An anthem accompaniment, preferably in a live situation with choir.
- Two contrasting solo organ works.
