Some of the top professional musicians from around the country will descend on Door County next weekend in preparation for the Birch Creek Music Academy. The Birch Creek Music Performance Center has hosted students ages 13-19 since 1976 and offers four, two-week camps where students receive intense mentoring to help further their music education and serve as a test to see if they are ready for a career in music. Mona Christensen, Executive Director for Birch Creek says it’s not the traditional summer music camp.
The first concert of the season will be performed on Thursday, June 21st beginning at 7 pm. The summer will start with the percussion and steel band group, followed by the symphony, and then the two big band jazz groups to finish the summer. For tickets visit the Birch Creek Music Academy website.
