What does my registration fee include?
Registration covers your attendance and materials for the workshop PLUS your ticket to the performance.  You may want to purchase additional performance tickets for family and friends.

Who is welcome to attend the workshops?
You!  Both workshops are all-ages.  No professional writing or composing or ornithology experience necessary.  Just bring your enthusiasm for migratory birds and your creative self.

May I attend both workshops?
Absolutely.  We can transfer one of your performance tickets to someone else if you like.

What am I signing up for by registering for a workshop?
You are invited to participate in the creative process by sharing your musical inspiration and words for birds at our generative workshops.  If you would like to perform these new works with us, plan to join our rehearsal on Saturday, October 6th (sometime between 1-5pm) and the performance on Sunday, October 14th (showtime is at 3pm).  Exact times TBA.

What if I really want to write or compose for the performance, but don't want to get up and perform?
We'll do our best to convince you that it's OK to be seen on stage, but in the end we want you to contribute in whatever way feels right to you.
