Shortly after you see the first symphony students come to Egg Harbor next week, you will be able to celebrate our nation’s freedom with them. Birch Creek Music Performance Center has a week of percussion and steel drum performances before the symphony students move in on July 3rd. That does not leave a lot of time for the students to get acclimated to their new surroundings and prepare for one of the center’s most popular concert offerings. Birch Creek Music Performance Center Executive Director Mona Christenson is confident the students will be ready for the matinee performance thanks to their talents and familiarity with the music.
The Fourth of July Concert featuring patriotic tunes and the songs of West Side Story will begin with pre-concert entertainment at 2:30 p.m. followed by the performance at 3 p.m.
