Birch Creek Receives WI Art Board Grant

Birch Creek Music Performance Center, Egg Harbor, recently received a grant of $13,090 from the Wisconsin Arts Board. This grant, awarded through the Creation & Presentation Program, supports Birch Creek’s mission of providing intensive, performance-based instruction to promising young musicians.

Additionally, local school students in all five Door County public schools have benefited from Birch Creek’s annual “Artists in the Schools” outreach program, which has served more than 3,000 students since its inception in 2001-2002. “Artists in the Schools” engages youth in learning a wide variety of music from Birch Creek’s professional faculty members, and in the ethnic and social history of big band jazz, percussion & steel band, and symphony.
