MEC Concert: Music Inspired by Birdsong

Diane Moser
The Meadowlands Environment Center is hosting a unique concert this Saturday night featuring a composer who is very serious about using birdsongs as her muse.

The Birdsong Project Trio, led by pianist Diane Moser, performs at 8 p.m. at the MEC.

Moser, a Montclair resident, spent five weeks in the summer of 2008 at the MacDowell Colony for artists in New Hampshire, listening to birds to create compositions based on Robins, Sparrows, Chickadees and the natural soundscape.

More information follows.

Her trio will perform these compositions on Saturday, along with a reworking of “A Hermit Thrush at Eve,” by composer Amy Beach. The concert will be preceded at 7:30 p.m. by a talk on “Deep Listening and Acoustic Ecology.”

Tickets for the performance are $15, seniors $10, MEC members $8. For more information, call 201-460-8300 or visit
