Please join us for an evening of music and a rare viewing of the documentary film,
"Mpingo: the Tree That Makes Music"
Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, this intriguing and informative film follows the clarinet from harvest in Tanzania through production in France. Michael Gunton’s exquisite film links the instruments of today with the forests where people first made music, and shows how sustainable management of Mpingo plantations benefits local communities and international markets alike. Following the film, Clarinets for Conservation teaching artists will talk briefly about their work with the students of Korongoni Secondary School in Moshi, Tanzania.
Hors d'oeuvres and Wine will be served during the event.
Proceeds benefit the Clarinets for Conservation Tanzania Project
