This event has passed and is archived.

A collaboration between young Los Angeles County music students, music education team WE ARE LIKE MUSIC, and the Aquarium, Ocean’s Orchestra will feature musical performances created using the movements of fish.

Ocean’s Orchestra will be performed live before an audience as the inhabitants of the Aquarium’s Honda Blue Cavern exhibit swim past musical bar lines placed on the nearly three-story-tall exhibit window. A group of twenty students playing stringed instruments will translate the movements of the fish into music. Then, the audience members can visit other exhibits throughout the Aquarium and hear small groups of musicians interpreting the movements of marine life.
