FRESH Sounds // Carly Prentis Jones + Friends
June 25, 7-9pm
Carly Prentis Jones is a vocalist and theatre artist who has performed on stages throughout the Triangle region for over a decade. Carly grew up singing in choir and on youth stages in the City of Oaks and later received her formal vocal training at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio where she earned degrees in vocal performance and arts administration.
Carly is a versatile performer – spanning opera, musical theatre, classic and contemporary theatre. Some of her most favorite musical performance credits include: Camila in In The Heights (North Carolina Theatre); Justice in Rock of Ages and Nettie in Carousel (Theatre Raleigh); Dorothy in The Wiz (Burning Coal Theatre); Nettie in The Color Purple, Sarah in Ragtime, and Lily in The Secret Garden (Justice Theatre Project). As a classically trained singer, Carly also enjoys performing as an active recitalist and soloist with symphonies and chamber groups. She most enjoys working on new works with playwrights and musicians uplifting stories of those that have traditionally been silenced and surrounding current issues. Most recently, she has enjoyed working with playwrights on new works such as Orange Light by Howard Craft, XIX by Jacqueline Lawton, and the new audio drama, The New Colossus by Tamara Kissane. Carly believes that the arts can be used as a unique tool to cultivate empathy and bridge divisions. Stay tuned for her next performance projects: www.carlyprentisjones.com
Carly has a long history of wearing two artistic hats: working as a performance artist and working as an arts advocate and executive when she is not on stage. Her experiences as an artist have informed her administrative work with the artist support organizations. Currently, she enjoys most of her time working as Artspace’s President + CEO.
FRESH Sounds is a fundraising concert series with an intimate vibe featuring live music and spoken word artists. All performances will take place at Artspace in our gallery spaces from 7:00-9:00pm. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.
