Music is in the air at Birch Creek Music Performance Center. String, wind, brass and percussion players have arrived on campus for the 2018 season of the Symphony Session. Each day, students and faculty are working on perfecting their technique in sectional instruction throughout practice rooms and rehearsal halls.
The Birch Creek Symphony program is unique in orchestral and chamber music education in that it incorporates a student/mentor approach in virtually every aspect of training. Students rehearse and perform alongside their teachers, receiving an abundance of personal attention. Seven public performances of five completely different orchestral programs are given during the two-week session.
All of this hard work and talent is on display for audiences during every Symphony concert presented July 4-7 and July 12-14. This year, Birch Creek has programmed all of the Symphony concerts to include water-themed music in support of Celebrate Water Door County. Concertgoers will hear music ranging from Handel’s “Water Music” and Strauss’s “Blue Danube” to Henry Mancini’s “Moon River” and selections from South Pacific and Show Boat.
Tickets may be purchased online at birchcreek.org or by calling 920.868.3763. Birch Creek’s box office is open 9 am – 8 pm on concert nights and 9 am – 5 pm, Monday and Tuesday.
