The Movement at Berklee visits Franklin Park Zoo

A dozen Berklee College of Music students will be performing music for not only Zoo guests, but for the animals that call Franklin Park Zoo home, as part of a collaboration between the Movement at Berklee program and Zoo New England’s Animal Care department. From 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. performances will be held throughout the zoo in front of various exhibits, where guests can discover how animals respond to this special kind of animal enrichment.
