Review for Birch Creek Music Performance Center, Inc., Egg Harbor, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

William Fuller, former Birch Creek faculty member. A member of the Birch Creek "Pops" Orchestra for two summer sessions--Vince LaGuardia was the conductor--I was 2nd clarinet in '89 and principal in '90, taught clarinet lessons and coached a student woodwind quintet. I stayed on for the first jazz session in '89 playing tenor sax in the Academy Jazz Ensemble and coaching a student jazz combo. Now ten years retired after 30 yrs as a middle school band director with Madison Public Schools, I continue playing with the Beloit/Janesville Symphony, Madison Municipal Band, Madison Wind Ensemble, Capitol City Band, & the Retro Swing Band, plus a variety of other local itinerate ensembles. However, working for Jim Dutton those six weeks at Birch Creek will always remain as some of my happiest (and most intense) teaching and performing memories. See you this summer from the audience--Go BC!!!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the success of the students and the excitment in their eyes.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with great students and talented staff from all over the United States.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

top notch.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help so many more young musicians experiance the joy of music.
