Brooklyn’s National Sawdust is one of the most innovative venues in the country, a place where emerging and established artists can share their music with serious fans and casual listeners alike. The Wallis is thrilled to partner with National Sawdust, led by the visionary co-founder, Artistic Director and Composer Paola Prestini, for two boundary-breaking concerts in the intimate Lovelace Studio Theater this season.

“Paola Prestini is a composer and impresario whose interdisciplinary vision is helping to shape the future of new music.” – Broadway World
