Musician Paul Winter at AICC Breakfast Briefing

p1000666Four times Grammy award winner Paul Winter told AICC audience about his support of nature and conservation projects in Israel,  the American Society of Nature in Israel (ASPNI), the International Center for the Study of Bird migration (ICSBM) and the Israel Ornithology Center (IOC).

Winter has become very involved with these issues in Israel through his project Flyways, a musical celebration of the migration of half a billion birds along the Great Rift Valley from Eurasia through the Middle East to South Africa and back. Flyways will chronicle this extraordinary journey, using music of the cultures of the 22 countries over which the birds fly, interwoven with the actual voices of migrating birds, including cranes, eagles, bee-eaters, thrush nightingales, and many others. “Migrating birds know no boundaries” is the theme for the project, which involves musical collaborations across cultures, concerts, a CD/DVD, and an educational program to raise awareness, awaken awe and wonder, promote peace, and assist the work of a range of local conservation and cultural organizations throughout the region. The Flyways project also supports efforts to designate the Great Rift Valley as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, bringing together in common cause the 22 states of the Great Rift Valley.
