Local young artist will attend renowned Interlochen Arts Camp

INTERLOCHEN, Mich. – Noah Connolly, 15, of Greentown, has been accepted and will attend Interlochen Arts Camp, the world’s premier summer arts program for aspiring artists in third through 12th grade.

Connolly, the son of Joe and Leslie Connolly, will study oboe at the camp this summer.

Connolly studies oboe with Jennifer Kirkman, Kokomo, and attends Eastern Jr. Sr. High School where he is active in the band and choir programs. Connolly is also the principal oboe and English horn player for the Indianapolis New World Youth Orchestra and is musically active in his local community.

Interlochen Arts Camp attracts students, faculty and staff from all 50 U.S. states and more than 40 countries. These 3,000 artists fill Interlochen’s northwoods campus with an explosion of creativity. Student-artists learn from world-class instructors and produce hundreds of presentations each summer in dance, theater, creative writing, visual arts, music and film.

Among the distinguished camp alumni are Norah Jones, singer Josh Groban, members of the band OK Go, Rufus Wainwright, opera and concert soprano Jessye Norman, conductor Loren Maazel, jazz pianist Eldar, actor Anthony Rapp, cartoonist Cathy Guisewite and many more. Approximately 10 percent of the nation’s professional orchestra musicians have roots at Interlochen and the alumni community has been awarded nearly 100 Grammy Awards.
