This is a must - one of the best bargains in Door County!  You must check out their schedule, but the place itself is spectacular!  The concerts take place in an old barn on what used to be a farm – it is as rustic as it gets, but the acoustics are fine, the experience awesome!  After you park your car in the large parking field, you walk over and see the gazebo outside the barn – and some of the musicians are warming up and jamming prior to the actual concert – this alone is worth it!  The musicians are students from all over (mostly from the Midwest) who are learning and honing their skills with music teachers who spend the summer at Birch Creek and teach (some come from as far away as upstate New York).  Students live there on the grounds for about 2 weeks at a time, and then new students come in.  It is truly a wonderful learning experience for the students, and they put on wonderful concerts for us all!  At intermission, you can stroll the grounds, buy some popcorn, coffee of pop, a Birch Creek tee shirt or sweat, and stroll through the barn too – back around the left side where the practice rooms are, and where students are busy refining their craft!
