The Capitol Steps – Interlochen Arts Festival – July 3, 2017


Back by popular demand! The Capitol Steps once again bring their blend of hilarious political commentary to the Corson Auditorium.

With 35 albums consisting primarily of song parodies based on political highs and lows, The Capitol Steps satirize the very people and places that have employed them. And with all the political headlines bombarding us on a daily basis, the Capitol Steps cover every angle with unilateral laughter, no fakin’! No matter what side of the aisle you’re on, The Capitol Steps will bring you together.

The Capitol Steps was born in December, 1981, when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. They decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and created song parodies & skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor.

Although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together, the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.

Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded 35 albums, including their latest, “What to Expect When You’re Electing.” They’ve been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.

“They’re the best. There’s no one like them, no one in their league.” —Larry King, CNN

“The Capitol Steps make it easier to leave public life.” —Former President George H. W. Bush

Michael Feinstein – Interlochen Arts Festival – July 6, 2017


Five-time Grammy Award nominee Michael Feinstein is arguably best-known as a singer whose penchant for crooning the classics of the Great American Songbook has garnered him critical praise and a legion of devoted followers. However, his acumen as a historian, author, archivist and expert on this music is equally as important and allows him an insight into the heart, soul and creation of each timeless song. From Gershwin to Sinatra and back again, Feinstein’s voice, style and intelligence give each tune a special place in his powerful performances.

Referred to as “The Ambassador of the The Great American Songbook,” singer and musical historian Michael Feinstein has built a career over the last 30 years bringing the music created in the 1930s-60s to audiences around the world. With five Grammy Award nominations, as well as several Emmy nominated PBS-TV specials, his acclaimed NPR series, his sold-out concerts around the globe, his appearances at venues like The White House, Buckingham Palace, Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall and Sydney Opera House—Feinstein’s work as an educator and archivist define him as one of the most important musical forces of our time.
