Lake Placid Sinfonietta to Present Potsdam Brass Quintet in Area Schools

The Lake Placid Sinfonietta Education Committee is pleased to announce an in-school residency of the Potsdam Brass Quintet on Monday May 22 in Lake Placid. The Lake Placid Sinfonietta’s education programs are presented with support from the Glenn and Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation.

In addition to the in-school program, the Quintet will present a free public performance at 5 pm at Mr. Mike’s Pizza Restaurant at 2742 Main St. in Lake Placid followed by a meet and greet reception with complimentary light refreshments. The performance will last about ½ hr. and the restaurant will be open to any who want to purchase menu items. Free-will donations will be gratefully accepted to support the Lake Placid Sinfonietta’s Education programs.

During the day Potsdam Brass Quintet will visit the Lake Placid Elementary and Middle/High School as well as St. Agnes Primary School. They will perform at the Lake Placid Elementary School’s ‘Lunch and Learn”, present a short recital for the entire student body at St. Agnes, and host master classes and attend a rehearsal at the Lake Placid Middle-High School. This residency replaces the previously planned student quintet residency canceled this past March due to illness.

The Potsdam Brass Quintet, established in 1968, is the brass quintet-in-residence at The Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam. The current members of the Potsdam Brass Quintet are Brianne Borden and Luke Spence (trumpet), Lauren Becker (horn), Christopher Hernacki (trombone) and Charles Guy (tuba). All are members of the Crane faculty. The Potsdam Brass Quintet has performed in concert throughout much of the United States and Canada, including performances at New York’s Lincoln Center and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.

Adirondack Life and Adirondack Land Trust Announce My Adirondacks

A project for kids to capture, interpret, and share their experiences in nature

Adirondack Life and Adirondack Land Trust announce My Adirondacks, a project that invites kids, ages 5 to 17, to photograph an aspect of the natural world within the Adirondack Park and share why it matters to them.

Submissions can be sent to and will be accepted now through August 19, 2023. The following information is required:

· Name and age.
· Where in the Adirondack Park the photo was taken.
· Up to a few sentences about why the image matters to the person who took it.

This project provides an opportunity for kids and teens, who will inherit the Adirondack Park, to capture, interpret and share their experiences in nature. Adirondack Life may publish these interpretations in a future issue of the magazine, and the hosting partners will also post them on their respective social media channels.

“Adirondack Life has published stories about kids, but from adult perspectives. Now it’s their turn. It’s time to know what kids see and feel when they experience this place,” said Annie Stoltie, executive editor and co-publisher, Adirondack Life.

“Whatever captures their attention—a flower, a critter, a view, a texture—we can’t wait to see how young people connect the dots between the natural world and their sense of place in the Adirondacks,” said Mike Carr, executive director, Adirondack Land Trust.
