****************************

Breathing In Nature

Concert in the Wild at Dusk

(in-person)

Leaves ring like bells

Water sings and grasshoppers pulse

Flutist takes a breath and joins the play

In this outdoor concert, solo flute performed by Carrie Rose weaves with films and sounds from nature. This concert is at Cunningham Falls State Park William Houck Campground in a charming amphitheater on a hillside among rocks and trees, and the aesthetic is a contemplative hush at dusk.  The program includes compositions by Rose and other contemporary and classical composers and a film by Ron Toole.  Woven into the program is an exploration of Maryland environmentalist Rachel Carson, author of Silent Spring and The Sense of Wonder.
