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

Rating: 5 stars  

I attend regularly, volunteer and am on the Board for Birch Creek. The more familiar I become with Birch Creek, the more impressed I am. I am amazed by the passionate and extensive involvement of the staff, faculty, Board and volunteers. It is so obvious that each of these groups believes in and is committed to the type of experience we provide for our students. The joy and thrill in the eyes of the students when they perform provides the impetus for doing all we can to continue and expand our offering. This past year, I have had the opportunity to spend more time with the faculty and that too speaks to the reason for Birch Creek's success. From TA's to the Program Directors, they are all there for the students and the music. It is incredible!

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

not only improving the skill level of the students but engendering a true love of music and performance. In addition, the setting allows us to bring this joy of music to the community and all who visit our beautiful area.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide it with more funding to expand its reach to a broader audience.

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

getting to know the students and faculty. Not being a musician myself, I feel like a new world has been opened for me.

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

passionate and caring. Our volunteers are not all wealthy in a monetary sense but give from a wealth of love for this organization and what we try to do.

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

provide more scholorships and opportunities for more young musicians to have this experience.

Ways to make it better...

only I had more time to volunteer.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

competition for funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the staff is wonderful and tireless in their support of our mission.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
