Glide and hop over to Urban Birds, an afternoon of birds and musical performances for kids and adults. Urban Birds takes place at the Children’s Garden in Northeast LA’s Ernest Debs Park. It is co-presented by the Audubon Society and Synchromy, a Los Angeles-based composer’s collective dedicated to making new music accessible. For this event, Synchromy tasked six local improvisers with creating music inspired by birds common to Southern California. Musical performances begin at 2:00 pm. At 1:00, we will be joined by Sunbeams LA, which will have crafting centers for kids, and Wild Wings, which will have live birds on site. There will be a bird walk in the morning, and information about that is available at the Audubon Center at Debs Park website. This event is free to attend.
This performance was made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
