Caramoor Presents John Luther Adams’ songbirdsongs
Caramoor presents a free outdoor performance of John Luther Adams' seminal work as part of a weekend birdsong celebration.
Caramoor rises with the birds on Sunday, July 14 with an early morning bird walk in our beautiful gardens followed by a day of music and nature-inspired activities for all ages. A special free concert, presented outdoors at 3 p.m., features a performance of John Luther Adams’ songbirdsongs by Sandbox Percussion and two piccolo players, Emi Ferguson and Catherine Gregory. The free concert is presented as part of “Caramoor Takes Wing,” a weekend celebration of bird song for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. “Caramoor Takes Wing” also includes a performance of Messaien’s complete Catalogue d’Oiseaux by pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard, a performance by clarinetist David Rothenberg (author of Why Birds Sing), a panel discussion with two artists and an ornithologist, and bird walks through Caramoor’s grounds guided by members of the Bedford Audubon Society. The Stamford Museum and Nature Center will present interactive activities for children from 2-4 p.m.
