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

Composer tries to capture Kachemak essence
Published: August 29, 2005 in Anchorage Daily News
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...

"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
