Birdsong: An Evening Chorus

with Andy Holden, Peter Holden and David Rothenberg

Birdsong

Join us at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery for a melodious flight into the magical world of birdsong.

Artist Andy Holden and ornithologist Peter Holden begin the evening with an interactive musical talk, exploring both the art and the science of birdsong with the help of live sound performance, moving images and archival footage.

The second part of the evening will consist of a performance by the composer and professor of music David Rothenberg, author of Why Birds Sing. Rothenberg specialises in the relationship between art and the natural world and his performance will emulate the rapturous rhythms of birdsong.

In association with Bristol Museum & Art Gallery and the University of Bristol.
