It will not be long before you will be able to walk the grounds of the Birch Creek Music Performance Center in Egg Harbor and hear music in the air. Tickets are already on sale for the upcoming season, which kicks off on June 22nd with the Percussion, Steel Band, and World Music session. The Symphony session starts up two weeks later on July 4th with the first of two Big Band sessions following suit on July 19th. Just because the barn is sitting quietly now does not mean there is not a lot of work happening behind the curtain. Executive Director Mona Christensen says a lot of work goes into welcoming hundreds of students and their supporting staff members for a summer of music.
In addition to their performances in the concert barn from July 22nd through August 12th, Birch Creek Music Center has four family concerts and more than 20 shows around the county featuring their jazz combo scheduled for this summer.
