Invest in Musicians

At Birch Creek we strive to provide access to every eligible student. Over half of our academy students receive a partial scholarship, funded by inspired, generous donors. Of these scholarship students, over 80% have indicated that they are pursuing a career in music. By investing in the Birch Creek scholarship program, you are literally changing the lives of future, professional musicians. Many of our students move on to be professional performing musicians and teachers. All have a keen appreciation for live music and performance. Would you join us in supporting our students and the future of music in our world?
