 Have you ever dreamed of flying like a bird, or marveled at their silvery bursts of song? If so, “For the Birds” is for you! The Artisan Winds Flute Trio (Brigitte Chase, Cynthia Ferguson, and Cathy Vandendoel) will perform a bird-inspired musical event to benefit Umpqua Valley Audubon. Sure to delight both bird lovers and music connoisseurs alike, get ready to hear a delightful array: from baroque and classical pieces, to pop tunes and modern masterpieces that include an Irish piece on the lark, a Native-American rendition of an Eastern screech-owl, busy bird chatter at dawn, and a musical rendering of “flight”. Photos by various wildlife photographers will be projected to accompany the music.

In addition to the music and photos, there will be a sale of beautiful and unique bird-inspired artistic creations by the musicians that includes watercolors on antique sheet music, handspun knitted birds and exquisite paper feathers. We also hope to have bird-inspired painted rocks donated by various artists in Douglas County.

Thank you to Artisan Winds Flute Trio for envisioning and creating this wonderful event and donating all the concert proceeds and art sales to help our feathered friends through Umpqua Valley Audubon.

Both Artisan Winds and Umpqua Valley Audubon are thrilled to have artists, non-profit groups, and the community coming together to support each other while creating smiles and laughter.

HOPE YOU CAN JOIN US! (Plan to come a little early to get your seats and browse the art!)
