CLOSED: Getting Ready For The Holidays: Wonderland Escapades A Musical Dream CD 2 Winners

Considering the clamoring for all things Alice, there could never be a better time for Las Vegas based pianist and arranger Maria Russell to release Wonderland Escapades: A Musical Dream—a beautifully conceived and crafted CD of songs composed by her mother Gloria V. Russell that were inspired by scenes, characters and set pieces from the well known children’s story.

Broken into three acts with several scenes and songs each, Wonderland Escapades features Maria’s arrangements and piano and keyboard performances, as well as guest vocals by Shelley Martinsen and Dan Frank, singers for the Vegas based Nevada Opera Theatre. Among the many musical endeavors around the city that Maria takes part in, she has been the featured pianist with this theatre for the past eight years.

While the movie’s success makes the timing of the stylistically diverse CD intriguing, this is actually a labor of love begun by Gloria many years ago, when the Russell family lived in Fort Walton Beach on the Florida Panhandle. Gloria originally composed the opening song “Dream Child” as a lullaby for Maria when she was a baby, and wrote the other songs some years later when her daughter was taking ballet lessons. Gloria’s goal was to compose a new version of “Alice in Wonderland” as a ballet for the Fort Walton Beach Ballet Company.

The Playlist includes:
1.Dream Child
2.Wonderland Dream
3.The White Rabbit Dance
4.Magic Ballet
5.Pup n' Purr Song
6.Cheshire Cat Blues
7.The Dee Dum Dee Song
