Life on Land’s Edge | A concert celebrating bird migration

July 30, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

| $5 – $40

This performance will take you on an epic journey alongside migratory birds as they connect continents and cultures. A cinematic concert experience, Life on Land’s Edge draws on art, science, and music from across the ages. Spectacular footage and soundscapes set the scene for two of Australia’s most adventurous musicians. Be immersed in one of nature’s greatest stories.

About the performers: Simone Slattery (violin/vocals, PhD, Churchill Fellow) and Anthony Albrecht (cello, The Juilliard School) are internationally renowned musicians, specializing on both period and modern instruments, and founded the Bowerbird Collective in 2017 to bring their audiences closer to nature through the arts.

The 60-minute performance is followed by a Q&A. For more information visit
