Do not be surprised if you hear a jazz standard or two while visiting different spots in Door County this summer. Birch Creek Music Performance Center is continuing its tradition of its jazz outreach concerts with student ambassadors setting up music stands throughout the county ahead of their concerts in Egg Harbor. The jazz ambassadors wrapped up their first week of pop-up concerts with a performance at Martin Park in Sturgeon Bay near where many were enjoying the sights and tastes of the city’s farmers’ market. Students earn their spot in the group by auditioning and then oftentimes have to perform twice a day during the session. Birch Creek Music Performance Center Executive Director Mona Christenson says session after session, the students that perform in the Jazz Ambassadors ensemble are a special group of kids.
The Jazz Ambassadors will play at different locations in Egg Harbor, Baileys Harbor, Fish Creek, and Sister Bay ahead of the end of the first Big Band Jazz session at Birch Creek Music Performances. You can see their full schedule by clicking this link.
