Rob Schwimmer: Triple Helix – Keeping It Unreal

Sunday, March 10, 3 pm

“Virtuosity, magic and humor”
New York Times

Rob Schwimmer inhabits the same universe as the elusive Triple Helix—one that doesn’t exist except for his own invention. He is the master of his own musical kingdom where he, playing solo, conjures a sound world created by his singular virtuosity at the piano, theremin (on which he’s considered to be one of the world masters) and Haken Continuum—a rarely heard combination which allows him to bring audiences to beautiful and mysterious new sonic territory and perhaps find new or re-connect with forgotten feelings.

He will perform a solo concert on piano, theremin and Haken Continuum at the Saranac Methodist Church on Route 3 in Saranac, New York. The program includes works by Mussorgsky, Scriabin, Strayhorn, and the Beatles plus original compositions and improvisations for all three instruments; theme and variations on standards, classics and movie soundtracks—overall, a healthy dose of mystery.

Science Storytelling… and Some Very Strange Caterpillars

Loree Griffin Burns

Tuesday, March 5, 2024, 7 – 8:30 pm

In her upcoming book for kids, One Long Line, Loree introduces pine processionary caterpillars. Known for their odd habit of moving in large family groups and always in single file lines, these unusual creatures inspired two distinct series of experiments, conducted on different continents and decades apart, allowing scientists to transcend time, space, and species.

Loree Griffin Burns holds a Ph.D. in biochemistry and writes about science and nature, mostly for kids. Her books include Life on Surtsey, the story of one of the newest islands on Earth; Beetle Busters, the tale of a rogue beetle and its surprise appearance at the edge of our northeast hardwood forest; and You’re Invited to a Moth Ball, an introduction to moths and mothwatching. She lives in Westport.

Trust Your Clown With Michael Galligan

Saturday, March 2, 12- 4 pm, March 3, 12- 4 pm

In this workshop, unlock your vulnerability, silliness, and courage onstage in pursuit of creating a 5-minute solo act. Saturday will focus on games, ensemble building, and exploring ideas for material that resonate. Sunday we will deepen our connection to that material, shaping it into a performable piece. No prior comedy, theater, or clown experience required.
