Aquarium and orchestra both see music in the ocean
(AP) – What do the Aquarium of the Pacific and the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra have in common?
They both find music in the ocean and its wildlife.
To show off their unusual bond, they are presenting a free, ocean-themed concert at the Aquarium’s Great Hall on June 7 from 7:30-9:30 pm.
Surrounded by fish, orchestra members will play George Crumb’s “Voice of the Whale” for flute, cello, and piano, a piece inspired by the humpback whale. Other pieces built around the screech of the seagull and crash of waves will be featured.
Aquarium officials say the concert is free, but those planning to attend have to sign up ahead of time.
