You may have heard the birds at the beginning of our show. We wanted to enter the performance with calm and disarming sounds that set the mood of positivity, hope, and celebration. It is a mix of five birds that we specifically created for the perfect sound and underlying symbolism.
The bird songs are mix of sparrows (Song Sparrow, Sage Sparrow, and Lark Sparrow) with a Nightingale and Mourning Dove.
The sparrows symbolize hope, community, and humility. Nightingales symbolize inspiration and creativity. Mourning doves symbolize peace and their call gives them their ‘mourning’ name. All of these things are thoughts that either represent how we want to approach our show or how we want to memorialize the memory of John.
