This year, the AT&T Performing Arts Center will also be hosting its first major fundraising event, Prelude Lights, on the night before Prelude, Thursday, October 20. The ticketed event will take place in the Center’s outdoor amphitheater Annette Strauss Square surrounded by the city’s skyline.
Prelude Lights is an extraordinary evening of culinary delights and interactive art in varied mediums of light and sound featuring a live performance by Denton-based electronic band Neon Indian and a DJ set by Zhora. Guests will also be the first to see and interact with the curated Prelude.
Christy Berry will serve as Gala Chair, Mary McDermott Cook is the Honorary Chair and Preston Evans is the Young Professionals Chair. Proceeds from Prelude Lights will support arts education, community programs and future imaginative projects presented by the nonprofit Center.
More information about Prelude Lights, including tickets and sponsorship opportunities, is available at www.preludelights.com.
The Art Bar features the light installation ‘The Future’ by Denton artists Alicia Eggert and Safwat Saleem. Your pass includes three complimentary drinks and appetizers by Wolfgang Puck Catering. It also invites you to take a guided indoor tour, to see a panoramic view of the PRELUDE art installations outside from the upper levels of the Winspear Opera House through the glass facade, and to hear more about the installations.
Art Bar will be open for both nights of PRELUDE, Friday, October 21 and Saturday, October 22 from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Wristbands allow come-and-go access so patrons can enjoy both the Art Bar inside the Winspear Opera House and PRELUDE outside.
Only 250 tickets are available for each night. Art Bar tickets are $55 and can be purchased online at here.
Food & Drinks
PRELUDE will include a variety of delicious dining and drinking options: whether you want a snack or a whole meal, a soft drink or an alcoholic beverage. Vendors will be throughout Sammons Park and Strauss Square, and along Flora Street. For a little more luxury, consider purchasing a ticket to Art Bar, an oasis inside the Winspear Opera House.
