Growing up in Fairbanks, AK, I’ve always been curious about the composer, John Luther Adams, who lived in a dry cabin as so many do in my hometown. The featured work we’ll share on the mountain tops is “The Wind at Maclaren Summit,” which references a pass I solo skied many times on family trips into the Maclaren Lodge – my family hauling the gear on snow machines and I skiing in the silence except when passing a bush full of white ptarmigan. I’m eager to share this work about wind in the elements, to see how the stress and release – calm and dissonance – of nature intersects with its abstract representation in this piece. —Carrie Krause
The times that I experience the purest joy are when I am dancing, or when I am in the mountains. For me, dancing in the mountains is the expression of my neverending wonder at these spectacular landscapes, and my gratitude for this remarkable existence and the sublime mysteries of earth. —Genevieve Trygstad-Burke
Note these peaks are within wilderness and there is a strict limit of 15 in a group (or at the summit). Please be conscientious of this in approaching the peak, and the performance will be repeated as needed to accommodate smaller group size
Update regarding possible weather reschedule will be posted by 6pm the evening prior. Rain date 10 am on Saturday, July 29.
Please note this is a pop-up style event and those joining should take responsibility for their own adventure. Changes and unpredictability are a given – please watch the website for updates, as well as Facebook & our mailchimp lists, and feel free to be in email contact.
