Music to Save Earth’s Songs

Music to Save Earth's Songs will include three public keynote events as well as 20 tiny concert videos called Animal Interludes. Each video, just a few minutes long, is an original composition of words and music in honor of a threatened or beloved animal. For example, Robin Kimmerer will read a passage about seabirds, with a string duet. Lauret Savoy will read about sage grouse, accompanied by Mark Weaver playing tuba. Aimee Nezhukumatathil will read from an essay about meadowlarks, with an original flute composition by Jane Rigler.

Keynote Events

  • January 23: The Extinction Variations world film premiere
  • February 20: Book launch party for Earth's Wild Music
  • March 20: Workshops, Writing for Change, Music for Change
