Hi, everyone. I'm Brennan Lowrey and I'm 16 and a sophomore at Sheridan High School in Sheridan, Arkansas. I've just found out that I have been accepted to Interlochen Arts Camp's six week High School Summer Orchestra program on violin! As far as I know, no one from my hometown has ever been to Interlochen before.
To let you know a little bit about myself, I started taking violin lessons a little over 7 years ago and have become completely hooked. Pretty much everything I spend my time on is creative. When I'm not practicing or performing, I'm composing, writing short stories or working on a novel. I play with the Arkansas Symphony Youth Orchestra, and at school I am a member of the Sheridan High School Concert Choir. Our school does not have an orchestra program, so being able to spend a summer immersed in orchestra every day would be incredible.
The exciting thing to me about Interlochen is that in addition to the amazing instruction and performance opportunities with the orchestra program, I may also get to spend time working on composition. This is completely my dream summer!
However, we have a huge hurdle to get me there. Michigan is a long way from Arkansas, and while the camp has graciously provided financial aid, I will still need about $6,500 to get me there. That amount includes the remaining tuition, the cost of uniforms, and travel expenses to get me to and from the camp. My family is very supportive, but we do not have a lot of financial resources and could really use your help. Any amount you could give would be really appreciated!
Thank you for visiting my page! I'll be posting updates as we get closer to the summer.

Just wanted to give you an update on some upcoming events. I will be presenting a recital with my sister, Maddie (soprano) on Friday, May 15th at 7 pm at the First United Methodist Church in Sheridan, Arkansas. For those of you who live nearby, I would love for you to come. The recital is free and all are welcome.

Later this summer, I am headed to the Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival in Burlington, Vermont. Very excited about this opportunity.

Hi, all. Thank you again for making it possible for me to experience Interlochen this summer. I've just updated the page with a recording of something I worked on at Interlochen this summer. This is the first movement of Mozart's Concerto No. 4 in D maj, K. 218.

Hello everyone! I've just returned from the most amazing journey of my life, and I can't thank you enough for making my trip to Interlochen possible. Interlochen has changed me in so many ways, and opened my eyes to a whole world of art that I hadn't dreamed existed. I met people from Qatar, Turkmenistan, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Columbia, Okinawa, and many other places around the world that share my passion for music. I made friends with so many people that I hope to meet again one day. Through countless hours of art I have experienced and learned so much, and have been exposed to so many new ideas, that it will be years before I fully understand it all. Interlochen is such a magical place, and is an incredible inspiration. Thank you all so much for all of your support, and for making this journey possible!
