Symphony of the Hawaiian Birds is a place-based interdisciplinary program that brings together science, music, art, dance, and education to tell the story of our endangered Hawaiian forest birds. Featuring original compositions, animations, artworks, and lesson plans for teachers and students, the Symphony of the Hawaiian Birds has already been performed for more than 10,000 people on O‘ahu.
Now partnering with the Kaua‘i Forest Bird Recovery Project, the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Wind Ensemble will be performing this special symphony on Kaua‘i for the first time.
