Adrienne's Whereabouts
January 2006
Adrienne Albert will return to Alaska and the Kenai Peninsula to continue her "reconnaissance missions" and learn more about the life, land, and people of this area. In the cold, dark days of January, Adrienne will be visiting Russian villages and spending the Russian Orthodox Christmas with the Sukgiats in Nanwalek. Other activities will include working with the high school and community college choirs in both Homer and Kenai in preparation for composing the final movement of her work for choir and orchestra as well as preparing the Homer choirs on her choral work, "Weaver of Dreams" which they will perform in Italy in April. Dog Sledding and visiting oil rigs are also on the schedule. This is all part of a generous grant from the NEA and the American Composers Forum for their Continental Harmony project for Alaska.

HOMER, Alaska -- Adrienne Albert has been hiking on a glacier, blueberry picking in Nanwalek, setnet fishing, sightseeing by plane, seining and four-wheeling. She's talked to homesteaders, youth and locals from all walks of life, slept on a dripping bathtub and used an outhouse. She was even going to tour an oil rig in Cook Inlet until weather got in the way. An overachiever tourist? No, Albert is actually a composer who is immersing herself in everything Homer so she can turn it into music. A California-based musician and composer, Albert is working on a grant provided by the American Composers Forum and NEA for their Continental Harmony Project, an organization aimed at bringing composers and communities together to create music that reflects local history and culture...

Adrienne's New Work Animalogy Premieres at the Pratt Museum in June
Adrienne will be in Alaska from June 10th to June 17th for the Premiere of her new work, ANIMALOGY (n.) at the Pratt Museum in Homer, Alaska on June 16th. This work will be premiered out of doors at the Pratt Museum in the Kenai Peninsula as part of her NEA grant for the Continental Harmony Project for Alaska. The Pratt Museum will be opening their exhibit of "Facing The Elements". It should be a wonderful event coinciding (almost!) with the summer solstice. The Premiere will take place in the woods in an amphitheatre behind the museum. The musicians will come out from behind the trees playing their instruments and find their way to the stage. Expect 19 hours of daylight in this region of the world with many exciting events taking place around this time. MORE

Adrienne Albert Featured in the Homer Tribune, June 14, 2006
"Blowing winds and other elements at the Pratt":... Adrienne Albert will present her newest woodwind quintet, ?Animalogy? ? a piece she conjured through local flora and fauna. ?It was inspired by Gull Island, and all the experiences she had with wildlife,? said Laura Norton, production manager for the Kenai Peninsula Orchestra.

According to Norton, ?Animalogy? is the second movement of a three-part production, and has a ?light and playful? feel. The first of Albert?s work will use a symphonic orchestra to create a heavy, ?Earth-forming? kind of affair. The last part will use a full orchestra and choir, invoking what Albert calls an ?Ode to Joy.? The musicians in the quintet have been practicing for more than a month, and will be completing the final rehearsals in Anchorage over the weekend. The show starts on June 16 at 7 p.m. in the forest amphitheater .. Read Entire Article Here
