On the Wing: A Celebration of Birds in Music and Spoken Word
March 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Tuesday, March 27, 7:00 P.M.
Inspired by his love of nature, composer and Berklee College of Music Professor Andrew List has created a uniquely collaborative performance piece that marries music, song, poetry, and expert commentary on birds. On the Wing will showcase 12 original songs by List and features pianist George Lopez, Artist-in-Residence at Bowdoin College, and mezzo-soprano Krista River. Interspersed through the song cycle will be poems written and recited by poet and Babson College English Professor Mary Pinard (who also wrote lyrics to the music) and commentary by Wayne Petersen, Mass Audubon’s Director of Important Bird Areas and an expert guide.
Presented with support by the Division of Arts & Humanities
