A fabulous, fun time was had by all at WonderFest 2014 and I was so glad to join in the festivities at the concert last night, closing off a day of learning, collaborating and positive interaction at Revival Bar. And after a full day of workshops (A Capella Jam with Niki Andre and a Synergy Session with Madette), the gang was engergized and ready to go.
LMG Productions organizers Kat Leonard and Arlene Paculan hosted an amazing line-up of talent (aka Wonder Women & Super Men) from a variety of arts disciplines, including music, spoken word, stand-up comedy and visual arts. Visual artists included paintings – which were featured onstage – by Dorothy Knight, Rohan Moore and Stephanie Payne, and face painting by Lisa Diane.
The stellar roster of concert performers, in order of appearance, included:
- Candice Sand
- Dan Curtis Thompson
- Sarah Jean Villa
- Matt Zadkovich
- Heather Brissenden
- Kat Leonard performed an improvised dance to the track Emilia Nowicki was set to dance to, but unfortunately was off sick
- Ashley Martinez
- Bucky James
- Kat Leonard
- Arlene Paculan
- Emily Mac
- Ernie Vicente
- Rosita Stone
- Alissa Vox Raw
- The Four Winds Music Collective (Kat Leonard, Meghan Morrison, Heather Hill & Arlene Paculan)
In case you missed it the first time around, here’s the cowbell interview with Kat Leonard and Arlene Paculan about this event.
And thanks to Kat and Arlene for my fabulous WonderFest coffee mug!
