Benjamin Britten in Petoskey, Michigan?

 
Hello colleagues.  Years ago while working on a research project on Benjamin Britten and his War Requiem, I 'thought' I had read that he spent some time in Petoskey, Michigan.  I know he was in Grand Rapids - and I believe while in Michigan he journeyed from there up to Petoskey - and made mention of attending Emmanuel Episcopal Church, where Hemmingway had attended.  Does anyone have any information regarding this - anything that could substantiate this - or refute it?
Any information is greatly appreciated!
Cheers!
