Founded in 1976, Birch Creek is Door County’s unique residential center for music education and performance. Its mission is to provide intensive, performance-based instruction to promising young musicians by immersing them in a professional and mentoring environment.
Birch Creek is a school by day and a concert hall at night. During the day, music students ages 13-19 are involved in rehearsals, classes and seminars, working closely with faculty members who mentor them as musicians and guide them as young adults. At night, students join faculty to perform public concerts that directly serve Birch Creek’s mission by giving students diverse training of the highest quality as well as the real-life experience of performing before live audiences, and of performing with the frequency and varied repertoire that is required of professional musicians. Since its first class of 12 students in 1976, more than 6,000 students have studied and performed at Birch Creek.
