In response to my Elephant Music post:

Patty–Loved the posting about elephants on OboeInsight! Maybe it’s time for frogs???….
I am very pleased that my performance of Phillip Kent Bimstein’s music for oboe, frogs, crickets & coyotes, Half Moon at Checkerboard Mesa, has been enlisted to help generate public awareness and understanding of the amphibian extinction crisis which represents one of the greatest species conservation challenges in the history of humanity. During 2008, Amphibian Ark is leading zoos, botanical gardens and aquariums in a globally coordinated public awareness campaign, “The Year of the Frog.” Phillip and I have donated our work towards this cause.
I hope you’ll take time to check out Amphibian Ark’s webpage featuring an endangered frog slide show accompanied by Half Moon at Checkerboard Mesa, with an opportunity to donate to the cause:
