PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (Jan. 4, 2017) — The Adirondack Wind Ensemble will present a staged version of Igor Stravinsky’s “The Soldier’s Tale” will be presented at two different venues beginning Saturday, Jan. 28 at 4 p.m. at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts, 17 Algonquin Dr., Lake Placid.

The second performance will be Sunday, Jan. 29 at 2 p.m. in the E. Glenn Giltz Auditorium, Hawkins Hall, on the SUNY Plattsburgh campus. 

Daniel Gordon, professor of music at SUNY Plattsburgh and director of the ensemble, will conduct the professional ensemble of North Country music teachers and other wind and percussion instrumentalists. The production will also include narration by Roger Andrews, retired member of the Metropolitian Opera Chorus, choreography by Antoinette Knoedl, a local theater and dance performer, and actors/dancers Andrew Ducharme and John Mashtare.
