Paying tribute to one of the Adirondack’s most treasured personalities, Anne LaBastille, Ricochet Duo will be unveiling a special concert program at The Lake Placid Center for the Arts honoring the late Adirondack conservationist, self-proclaimed Woodswoman, author, and friend.
This program will include the world premieres of three new compositions commissioned by Ricochet Duo for this concert. The works, written for piano and marimba, are from composers Hilary Tann, Doug Opel, and William Pfaff:
- Hilary Tann — Solstice
- Doug Opel — Playtime with Elvis and Krispy
- William Pfaff — Lichen
The multimedia program also includes stunning photography from world-class, regional photographers Mark Bowie, Shaun Heffernan, Carl Hielmann II, and Larry Barns that will be paired with specific musical works.
A photo album of select photos from Anne’s personal collection that has been provided to Ricochet Duo for this program by the Anne LaBastille Estate will also be shared via a slide show.
Ricochet Duo’s Woodswoman Project honors Anne LaBastille’s tireless work as an international environmentalist, author, and icon for women by way of weaving together music, sounds, images, and light. The concert repertoire has been selected to celebrate and focus on four tenets of LaBastille’s work:
water … woods … birds … silence
We hope you’ll join us as we premiere this very special program.
