Last year I was introduced to Chris Burrus, a wonderful young man from Nashville who happened to be attending Interlochen Arts Camp during the summer of 2013. I have been wanting to tell a story about Interlochen from the aspect of before and after camp, what happens to the camper once they leave? Thanks to Chris, his family and an ever-so-patient marketing director at Interlochen I have finally been able to get this piece edited.
After a lifetime surrounded by the music of Nashville, an aspiring musician makes the journey to Interlochen to learn, create, perform and network with his musical peers as part of the singer-songwriter program at Interlochen Arts Camp. He returns to the Music City with a new-found confidence in his ability to create and perform.
