Kevin Kling and Zeitgeist performance Bjorling Recital Hall

FOR THE BIRDS seems to be about birds. It features a series of pieces extolling the nature of particular birds (sparrows, roosters, woodpeckers, etc.), drawing parallels with our own human nature. Interspersed between, is insightful storytelling by Kling reflecting on childhood memories, immigration, illness, accidents, and healing. However, just below the surface (but discernible to those that look), FOR THE BIRDS is a work about human nature that compels us to reach beyond ourselves for more —more opportunity for our family, more money, more fun, more speed, more knowledge, more love. When all goes well, we call that need aspiration. When it doesn't, and we plunge to the earth with melting wings, we call it hubris. Through utterly delightful music and a worldview only Kevin Kling can provide, FOR THE BIRDS gives us the space to contemplate our nature, laugh at ourselves, and heal.

Free admission.
