Birch Creek, in its 44th year has served thousands of young student musicians over its robust history. Birch Creek is located three miles east of Egg Harbor on Wisconsin's beautiful Door County peninsula. The campus is centered around the 400-seat Dutton Concert Barn, a renovated century-old barn with exceptionally fine acoustics. The barn also includes practice rooms, classrooms, and a green room for those waitingperform. Across a courtyard that features the campus' open-air performance gazebo is the original farmhouse, which now serves as a listening library, faculty office, classroom facility, and sleeping quarters for counselors. The nearby granary is used for practice space, and there have been upgrades to a building that serves as a TA dorm. In 1998, a new kitchen/dining hall and classroom addition were dedicated, and 1999 saw the expansion of the farmhouse's sleeping quarters for counselors and interns. In 2001, a keyboard lab was installed in the farmhouse, and 2007 saw upgrades to the dining area, existing classrooms and student dorm. In 2008, three new buildings were added to Birch Creek's campus: a Rehearsal Center / second student dorm, a maintenance and storage building, and a Faculty housing facility with a common space for study, research, and relaxation. Birch Creek offers fine facilties for a music academy, including practice rooms and several rehearsal spaces.
