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!

Please note: Due to overwhelming interest, reservations for these events are full.
