On Saturday, the Jamestown Audubon Center and Sanctuary backyard will come alive with the sound of music when Cindy's Piano Studio teams up with Audubon for an outdoor recital fundraiser.
Beginning at 2 p.m., the students will perform with the ponds as a backdrop and the birds as an accompaniment. All the pieces of music will have an animal theme.
It was Cindy's Piano Studio's looking for ways to help our community that others may not think of that gave rise to this idea.
Perhaps a yellow warbler will sing along with Cindy’s Piano Studio’s recital that will be held in the backyard at the Audubon Center & Sanctuary on Saturday.
"Music is such an important part of our daily lives, and some of the 'songs' of nature are the most beautiful sounds around," said Cindy Robison, owner of Cindy's Piano Studio. "As I was walking around our neighborhood, I heard two birds singing back and forth to each other, and another animal had a rhythmic sound to its call. I went home and composed a little song based on their 'music.'"
The recital is open to the public, and audience members must bring their own lawn chairs or blankets. Admission is a donation; reservations are not required. All donations will benefit Audubon and its educational programs. In the event of rain, the location will change. For more information, call 569-2345.
The Audubon Center & Sanctuary is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren.
