Mary Prescott, ~Nois at Constellation

  • Constellation Chicago 3111 North Western Avenue Chicago, IL, 60618 United States (map)

Mary Prescott - piano

Interdisciplinary performer and pianist Mary Prescott delves into a world of experimental art music. Through richly textural explorations of the subconscious, Prescott unbuttons a naive yet profound identity, eliciting cavernous, sensorial sounds of harmonious discord.

~Nois is a saxophone quartet devoted to the performance of new music. Founded in 2016, ~Nois has quickly emerged as one of the premier young ensembles dedicated to contemporary performance. ~Nois was awarded the Silver Medal at the 2017 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, the largest and one of the most prestigious chamber music competitions in the United States. For their Constellation debut, ~Nois presents the work of Chicago-area composers including two world premieres. Works by Marcos Balter and David Reminick, along with three pieces composed for ~Nois: Mathew Arrellin’s “Apertures” and new works by Niki Harlafti and Craig Davis Pinson.
