January 31st and February 1st of 2015, Ricochet Duo will present THE WOODSWOMAN PROJECT - a multimedia presentation honoring Woodswoman Anne LaBastille’s tireless work as an world-renown environmentalist, author, and icon for women. The concert is a unique event which weaves together music, sound, image, and light, presenting selected repertoire to represent four mainstays of LaBastille’s work:
water … woods … birds … silence
The program includes new compositions commissioned by Ricochet Duo for these concerts. The works, written for piano and marimba, are from Adirondack composer Hilary Tann and Minneapolis-based Doug Opel:
Hilary Tann — Solstice
Doug Opel — Playtime with Elvis and Krispy
The multimedia program also includes stunning photography from world-class area photographers Mark Bowie, Carl Hielmann II and Shaun Heffernan.
And photos from Anne’s personal collection will be shared via a slide show that has been provided to Ricochet Duo for this program by the Anne LaBastille Estate.
At 5:30 Saturday night ONLY, there will be a pre-concert power-point presentation by Anne's friend and executrix of her estate Leslie Surprenant. It will include rare photos and memorabilia from throughout Anne's life, and is a fascinating look into Anne's history and background.
