Silver, Wood, & Ivory
Tracy Dietrich, the Silver and Wood of the duo, was born with the gift of perfect pitch. She says that playing music came as second nature to her from the time she was a child. Tracy has played other instruments, but it’s the flute that has captured the passion of her musical voice. Tracy has mastered nineteen different flutes and recorders ranging from the most primitive to the most sophisticated. These intricate varieties of flutes compliment her unique style.
Cindy Wittenberg, the Ivory of the pair, grew up in a musical family with a classically trained mother. She began playing the piano at the age of four and began formal training by the age of eight. Cindy also learned to play the organ and the bassoon which allows her to draw from a more orchestral experience when composing music.
Together, this two-person orchestra of classically trained artists have fashioned a tapestry of music that stirs the soul. Tracy and Cindy both have instrumental performance degrees: Tracy from Indiana University, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Cindy from Peabody Conservatory, Baltimore, Maryland.
Whether it’s a familiar song that causes memories to come flooding back or a new melody that creates a sense of calm, Silver Wood & Ivory have a compilation of over ten different works that will fill everyone’s melodic appetite.
One of their latest CDs, Adagio in the Forest, is the first of three in their Spa Series. This CD captures the spirit of the forest with a unique interplay between the flutes, piano and ethereal keyboards, woven together with the addition of a harp and contrabass flute to create a dreamlike quality. Splashes of authentic natural sounds will allow you to escape into a different dimension.
