Music is in the air, as Performance Santa Fe announces a very special appearance by one of Broadway’s shining lights, Jessica Vosk. The Broadway sensation won hearts with her portrayal of Elphaba in the multiple award-winning musical Wicked, while her solo shows have sold out Carnegie Hall and Chicago’s Symphony Center. Now Jessica brings a brand-new program to Santa Fe: a celebration of the music that inspires the spirit of the season, from joyful Broadway tunes to uplifting holiday favorites. Jessica Vosk: Golden Nights & Holiday Lights will hit the Lensic Performing Arts Center stage Wednesday, December 21, 2022, 7:30 p.m.
This addition to Performance Santa Fe’s 2022 – 2023 season expands the organization’s offerings to a record 27 performances of music, dance, and theater. Vosk’s Santa Fe performance premiere will feature Broadway tunes, pop songs, and holiday favorites, complete with live band accompaniment. In addition, the concert will serve as a fundraiser for PSF’s education programs – Arts for Life, The Masterclass Series, and the Field Trip Series – which serve thousands of Santa Fe Public School students and bring world-class artists to classrooms across Northern New Mexico. A portion of ticket sales will also be donated to The Food Depot.
