Debut Lecture Recital: The Pleasure of the Dawn Chorus: Preserving the Pandemic Soundscape
Exploring Conservation and Our Connection to Nature Through Music
Online Event – April 8, 2022, 2:00 – 3:30pm EST
Supported by the Buddhism, Psychology, and Mental Health Program, New College and Funded By Jackman Humanities Institute, University of Toronto
Throughout the year, students in religion and nature courses have recorded birdsong, on campus, in parks, and in backyards, and wrote reflections on the meaning of nature awareness. These recordings and reflections have inspired a musical composition, written and performed by students from the Faculty of Music. This online lecture recital features a premiere performance of the composition, and reflections by faculty and students upon nature and music, nature and spirituality, and urban wildlife conservation.
