The Capitol Steps
Returning for their 12th annual evening of side-splitting political satire, the members of Capitol Steps combine experience on the Hill with musical, acting, improv and sheer comedic talent in an equal-opportunity skewering of modern day politics. The only group in America that attempts to be funnier than Congress, they never fail to find humor in the latest headlines, scandals and videos. Given today’s gridlock, a Capitol Steps show may be the only thing capable of winning bipartisan support!

Ensemble Vivant receives accolades internationally and is a favourite wherever the group performs. Led by pianist/artistic director Catherine Wilson, Ensemble Vivant is known for its depth of artistry, passionate, virtuosic interpretations and engaging stage presence.

Ensemble Vivant’s month long tour in British Columbia in early 2015 was a triumphant success, including sold-out concerts, repeat invitations and rave reviews.

Lea Salonga
Known around the world for her powerful, crystal-clear voice and the emotional depth she brings to her singing, Lea Salonga may be best known for her Tony Award-winning role in “Miss Saigon.” Her dazzling musical theater career has included both Eponine and Fantine in “Les Miserables” on Broadway, as well as “Flower Drum Song,””Allegiance,” and most recently the revival of “Once on This Island.” Salonga is an equally well-known Disney Legend having voiced both Disney princesses Jasmine and Mulan.

Lea Salonga was a child star in the Philippines where she performed in professional productions of such musicals as “The King and I” and “Annie,” and released her first album at the age of 10. Her big break came at age 18 when she was chosen to play Kim in “Miss Saigon” on Broadway. She has performed sold out concerts in prestigious venues around the world from Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House, and is universally beloved by audiences in her native Philippines. Over a four decade career, she has released numerous solo, live concert and Broadway albums, the most recent “Blurred Lines” was recorded during her sold-out run at Feinstein’s/54Below in New York.

Jarabe Mexicano feat.  Ballet Folklorico de Los Angeles

Jarabe Mexicano feat. Ballet Folklorico de Los Angeles
The eclectic style, stirring vocals and lively instrumentation of Jarabe Mexicano comes together with national premier Mexican folk dance company, Ballet Folkloric de Los Angeles in a joyous and colorful celebration of musical traditions from both sides of the border. The two Southern California-based groups take audiences on a joyride through a mix of authentic Mexican folk, Latin rock, and Tex Mex songs. Their “Remember Me” from Disney’s “Coco” creates a memorable bridge between their immense talents.

Jarabe Mexicano hit the Latin music scene less than five years ago, performing on traditional Mariachi instruments accompanied by lively percussion. Their eclectic border spirit is enhanced by their harmonized vocals in Spanish and English and they are fast earning a reputation for bringing fresh style into the musical traditions they perform.

Ballet Folklórico de Los Ángeles, founded in 2011 by Kareli Montoya, has performed across Southern California and worked with artists and groups such as Lila Downs, Pepe Aguilar, Mariachi Divas and Mariachi Los Camperos. BFLA worked with Disney Studios on a performance to celebrate Pixar’s movie “Coco” and were invited to perform the award-winning song, “Remember Me,” at the 90th Annual Academy Awards.
