Music, Lakes & Blue Corduroy


Available March 31, 2021

Music, Lakes & Blue Corduroy:  A Memoir of Interlochen traces the artistic and emotional development of a gifted young violinist who attends a famous camp and school in northern Michigan during the Cold War era.  This is a book for anyone who would like to know what it feels like to play in a symphony; to survive bouts of performance anxiety and a ruthlessly competitive "challenge" system for orchestra chairs; to develop lifelong friendships and a love of Michigan lakes; and to fall under the spell of a magical place that continues to affect one's life story long after one has moved on.
