Birch Creek Celebrates July 4 With Symphony Concert

Birch Creek invites Door County to celebrate Independence Day with a special Symphony concert on July 4. The concert will be the first of Birch Creek’s Symphony Session, taking place two days after students and faculty arrive on campus.

The concert will begin early at 4 pm, with the annual pie and ice cream social preceding the music at 2:30 pm, complete with pies from local Door County bakeries. Nationally recognized faculty and gifted young students will perform patriotic pieces, including Irving Fine’s “Blue Towers,” Libby Larson’s “Overture for the Century,” John Philip Sousa’s “Picador March,” and Alfven’s “Colonel Bogey March.” The performance will be held in Birch Creek’s renovated, century-old concert barn, with pre-show music in the gazebo. Tickets are $29 for adults, $10 for students, and free for children ages 11 and under for the July 4th concert.

Birch Creek’s Symphony Session will also host concerts from July 6-8, and July 13-15. Symphony concerts will feature an orchestra of more than 90 players, with works by masters such as Weber, Gliere, Couperin, and more to be performed.

Birch Creek Music Performance Center in Egg Harbor is a residential summer music academy for advanced young musicians. Four sessions focus on Percussion & Steel Band, Symphony, and Big Band Jazz. 2017 concert and session dates are posted at
