Your summer full of music is under a week away as Birch Creek Music Performance Center in Egg Harbor prepares to welcome its first students of the year. They will move in on Sunday as they prepare for two weeks of percussion and steel band. Instructors are already on campus as they prepare to welcome students throughout the summer. Birch Creek Music Performance Center Executive Director Mona Christensen says transcribing musical selection across many genres for the percussion students makes for some unique and entertaining concerts.
The Percussion and Steel Band session covers two weeks and seven concerts, with the opening night performance scheduled for June 23rd. Pre-concert music begins at 6:30 p.m., with the show itself starting at 7 p.m. You can listen to our entire interview with Christensen by clicking this link.
