Whales compose, bullfrogs chorus, songbirds greet the dawn, and people everywhere sing and dance. What do we all have in common? Find out at the EcoTarium’s exciting hands-on exhibit, Wild Music.

Discover how nature is filled with “musicians” that create distinct musical masterpieces to communicate with and relate to one another. And, explore how human music is inspired by the music of other living creatures – from tiny insects to giant whales. Wild Music offers unique experiences to see, hear and feel sounds!

Built using ecologically green materials, Wild Music is a production of ASTC, the Science Museum of Minnesota, and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro School of Music, with major funding from the National Science Foundation and additional support from Harman International and NEC Foundation of America.

Presented Locally By: UniBank, Arts Boston, baystateparent, and the Worcester Bravehearts
