Burton – Enjoy an evening insect concert as cricket/katydid specialist and musician Dr. Lisa Rainsong introduces us to members of the Burton Wetlands insect orchestra.
Insect Orchestra: Nature’s Musicians will be presented on Friday, August 26 – 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the Burton Wetlands Nature Preserve, 15681 Old Rider Road, Burton/Newbury Townships.
A musician, composer and music theory professor at the Cleveland Institute of Music, Rainsong spent four months surveying the “singing insects” of Oakton Preserve and Observatory Park during the summer and fall of 2009, funded by a Geauga Park District Small Research Grant of $1,000. She has led this free, popular Burton Wetlands program three years straight. Registration is not required; those school age and older will experience it best. Call 440-286-9516 with questions.
