As we enter our 2020-2021 season, we find that we are still adjusting our plans to address the changing restrictions and requirements necessary to keep our patrons and musicians safe. We are currently unable to provide you with a definitive season, but we will do our best to keep you apprised of our updated plans through email and on our website and social media. Until we can safely meet again in the concert hall, we hope that you find enjoyment from our virtual performances and public offerings. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

“Bird Flight Patterns and Music”
Virtual Concert and Curriculum
Explore the exciting connection between bird flight and musical motion in this concert video with accompanying teacher’s guide and curriculum. The video features performances by the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra and NBSO Education Trio with special guests Heloise Degrugillier, Recorder Soloist performing the world premiere of Jamie Allen’s Nightingale Concerto. The video also includes a special interview with Xavi Bou, photographer for the Ornitographies Project, a video featuring David Lentink from Stanford University’s bird flight and robotics lab and a visit with Sam Claggett, Conservation Education Specialist from the Buttonwood Park Zoo with a special bird guest. The orchestra and trio will perform works by Haydn, Mendelssohn, Vaughan Williams, Strauss and Derek Bermel’s Murmurations.
The teacher’s guide will provide music, science, writing and visual art activities that further the bird flight pattern and music exploration. Activities include a starling murmuration interactive lesson with student-made “starlings on a stick,” play-along flap and glide melodies with the NBSO trio, thermal currents soaring experiment, music composition and improvisation activities, NBSO musician videos and much more.
The teacher’s guide will be released with the Video on a password protected page. The page will have the concert video and the teacher’s guide with clickable links to music videos, activity demonstrations etc.
