Sounds from the Sea: An Instrument Building Workshop
Join composer Cheryl Leonard for an hour of ear-opening fun with natural-object musical instruments. Cheryl will give a brief demonstration of her one-of-a-kind musical sculptures made from bones, rocks, shells, sticks, and seaweed. Then, build a thumb piano using driftwood, feathers, and dried kelp. Once our instruments are complete we'll explore different ways of making sounds with them, and then finish up by all playing together in a conducted improvisation. Co-produced by the La Jolla Historical Society.

Music in Our Natural World: A Concert and Conversation
Through musical soundscapes Cheryl Leonard investigates how climate change is transforming environments and ecosystems in the remote polar regions and here at home in California. Leonard will perform compositions that combine sounds from natural-object instruments with field recordings of natural soundscapes. Her live music will be accompanied by videos from visual artists Rebecca Haseltine, Oona Stern, and Genevieve Swifte. The event includes a post-concert audience Q&A with Leonard and Scripps scientists Alexander Gershunov and Art Miller, followed by a wine and cheese reception. Co-produced by the La Jolla Historical Society
