What We Owe to Birds – Cape May Spring Fest Musical Keynote Performance

May 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

You may hear birds singing at your feeder or backyard, now it’s time to listen to music inspired by those beautiful sound. Join us at the state-of-the-art Schmitdtchen Theatre at Lower Cape May Regional High School to see the musical presentation: What We Owe to Birds. This performance is a collaborative music and multimedia project meditating on bird conservation produced by five composers of the Princeton New Jersey-based Consonance Collective (CNSNC). Exploring topics ranging from the evolution of flight, flock migration behavior, birds of urban landscapes, birds endangered by forest fires, and shorebirds conservation, this project is brought to life by the BlackBox Ensemble, an NYC-based contemporary music ensemble dedicated to creating adventurous and engaging performances of the music of our time. What We Owe To Birds is CNSNC’s third entry in a series of collaborations with scientific partners, following on the heels of projects with the Space Telescope Science Institute and the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center.
