For the first time since August 2019, music will fill the air for a concert at Birch Creek Music Performance Center in Egg Harbor. After the pandemic canceled their in-person programming in 2020, students and staff attending Birch Creek’s percussion and steel band session began coming in on Sunday for two weeks of instruction and concerts. Birch Creek Music Performance Center Executive Director Mona Christensen says they are taking precautions to make sure their campers stay safe in accordance with current guidelines.
This week has already been a reunion for staff members and students, but Christensen says she has already heard from visitors excited for live music once again.
Birch Creek’s opening night performance on Thursday for the percussion and steel band session is sold out, but space is still available for its five other concerts as well as their symphony and big band jazz shows. You can hear our full discussion with Christensen online on our podcasts page.
