Requiem For My Father

A piano performance by artist Isaac Green Diebboll

Isaac Green Diebboll will perform his original spirited artwork, played and performed on our antique and original piano found in Instar Lodge for one night only.  There is limited seating, RSVP HERE.

"Each piano has a voice. Each unique with a sound and a temper. What I play with the keys on each piano are patterns - a series of motions, attempts to commune with my deceased father, an architect who had designed pianos in the later years of his life. What results when I play, more than anything, is a relationship between the son, the piano and the father." - Isaac Green Diebboll
