Bowerbird – Begin Anywhere

Friday, May 15, 2015 @ 8PM

The Rotunda
4014 Walnut St
Philadelphia, PA, 19104



Bowerbird presents:

a concert series about starting new things


This is a series about starting a new music ensemble. In Philadelphia. In 2015. But it is also a series for anyone that’s ever tried to make something with other people. It’s about starting a non-profit, or an ensemble, or a business, or choosing not too. It’s about being unstoppable in the face of soul-crushing paperwork, or just finding your own path. It’s about asking the question “How are we going to do this?”, answering “I don’t know”, and giving it a shot anyway. It’s also a chance to hear some great music and words of wisdom.

Conversations with:

Alex Torra, Makoto Hirano, & Benjamin Camp (Team Sunshine Performance Corporation)
Hanna Khoury (Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture)
Brian McTear (Weathervane Music)
