ALICE | Clayton Piano Festival | Fifth Season Anniversary Gala | Clayton, NC

ALICE at the Clayton Piano Festival's Fifth Season Anniversary Gala: Five for Five.

A real life Alice in Wonderland, pianist Mary Prescott, delves into a world of experimental art music – a hyper-sensory dimension of fantasy, curiosity, and unpredictability. Examining Lewis Carrol’s surreal Victorian novel through improvisation, Prescott tries and tests the concepts of time, identity, reality and rules, noting that traditions behave strangely in Wonderland. A classically trained adventurer who thrives in an unlikely playground, Prescott unbuttons a naive yet profound identity, eliciting cavernous, expressive sounds of harmonious discord. Prescott invites listeners to explore their own whims and curiosities from behind the curtains of this bravely evocative music.

$20 adults/$15 seniors. Free for students and children under 18.
