OKC Zoo: Animal Acoustics-The Remix!

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Ralph Ellison Library
Rooms A-B (AB)
Do birds bop to Beethoven? Do monkeys move to Metallica? Do toads tap to Taylor Swift? As humans, we tend to believe that whatever music we like, animals like too. But did you know animals march to the beat of a different drum altogether? In this amusing and musical program, we will listen to weird and wild music written for different animals, learn why they love them, and then compose our own pitch perfect tune that will surely be a hit on the Billboard Top 100 for Wild Things. 

This event is held at multiple libraries.

Funded in part by the Zoo Fund for Kids Grant.
