Each summer, the Birch Creek Music Performance Center brings together generations of musicians and fans on its grounds in rural Egg Harbor. A music school by day and concert venue at night, Birch Creek offers sessions in Symphony, Percussion & Steel Band and Big Band Jazz. Each of the concerts features a mix of professional and student performers who showcase their talents in the 50-seat Dutton Concert Barn.
Founded in 1976, Birch Creek is dedicated to educating talented young musicians ages 14 to 19. During each two-week session, the students work closely with expert professionals drawn from around the United States. From late June through mid-August, students get a taste of the real world of music as they learn and perfect music rapidly and then perform new programs nightly. With a student-to-faculty ratio of 2 to 1 or better, young musicians receive excellent instruction in their genre of music, be it Symphony, Percussion & Steel Band or Big Band Jazz.
For the audience, this means concerts of superb quality in a unique setting. Evenings include performances in the Dutton Concert Barn, in the campus outdoor gazebo and at other locations on the grounds.
