SHIFT: A Festival of American Orchestras Wings and Song: Bird-watching and Music with naturalist Dave Sutherland Monday, March 27, 2017, at 3:30 p.m. & 5 p.m. Rock Creek Park
In keeping with its "Nature and Music" theme, the Boulder Philharmonic brings its popular guided musical nature hikes to Washington's Rock Creek Park.
For hundreds of years, musicians and composers have been fascinated and inspired by birds! Join City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks naturalist Dave Sutherland for an easy bird watching walk around Rock Creek Park Nature Center (5200 Glover Rd NW, Washington, D.C.) to search for local birds during the spring migration, and--using portable speakers to play musical selections--explore ways that birds have been captured in classical music. Beautiful music, birds, and signs of spring guaranteed!
FREE event, but reservations are required. Each group has a maximum capacity of 30. To make a reservation, and for further information about event timing and location in Rock Creek Park, please contact Washington Performing Arts Ticket Services at (202) 785-9727, Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Or visit WPA here.
SHIFT is co-presented by Washington Performing Arts and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
