ABOUT THE CELEBRATION As Los Angeles’ largest multicultural holiday celebration, the 62 nd Annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration is presented by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. An example of the county’s commitment to equity and inclusion, this joyous performance provides Angelenos of all ages an opportunity to come together on December 24 to experience and honor the dynamic, rich cultures of Los Angeles. During the free show, many diverse L.A.-based artists — including community-based and professional choirs, music ensembles and dance companies — showcase their talent, artistry and traditions on the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion Stage. The three-hour production features instrumental music, song and dance performances.

HISTORY The L.A. County Holiday Celebration was founded in 1959 by the late Kenneth Hahn, who served as supervisor of the Second District of Los Angeles County from 19521992. An advocate for the arts, Supervisor Hahn developed the idea of a free daylong concert along the lines of a neighborhood talent show. When pioneering arts leader Dorothy Buffum Chandler asked Supervisor Hahn to support her plan to build an arts complex in Downtown Los Angeles, Hahn agreed, as long as the performing arts center would open its doors to the public for free every Christmas Eve. While The Music Center was under construction, the holiday show was held at the Los Angeles Sports Arena, and, in ensuing years, in the supervisors’ hearing room. Once The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion opened in 1964, the show was held in the new 3,100 seat auditorium, where it has continued to the delight of audiences of all ages for six decades. Over the years, the supervisors from all five county districts have supported the event. Today, the Board of Supervisors includes the Honorable Hilda L. Solis, First District; the Honorable Holly J. Mitchell Second District, Chair; the Honorable Sheila Kuehl, Third District, Chair Pro Tem; the Honorable Janice Hahn, Fourth District; and the Honorable Kathryn Barger, Fifth District. The show was produced for many years by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission,

now known as the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture. There are 15 arts commissioners named by the Board of Supervisors. They include: Tim Dang, Helen Hernandez and Leticia Rhi Buckley (First District); Pamela BrightMoon, Eric Hanks, Patrice Cullors (Second District); Madeline Di Nonno, Constance Jolcuvar and Rosalind Wyman (Third District); Darnella Davidson and Eric R. Eisenberg (Fourth District); and Alis Clausen Odenthal, Jennifer Price-Letscher and Liane Weintraub (Fifth District). While more than 6,000 people traditionally attend the Holiday Celebration at The Music Center in person, the show reaches all over Los Angeles County and beyond with a live broadcast on PBS SoCal and online at holidaycelebration.org, pbssocal.org/ holidaycelebration and kcet.org/ holidaycelebration, with an encore broadcast on PBS SoCal at 10 p.m. A rebroadcast of the show will air on KCET on Saturday, December 25 at 6 p.m. The 60 th Annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration was named the winner of a 2020 Los Angeles Emmy® Award for Live Special Events - Programming. The same Emmy-winning team, led by the program’s 26-year producer and director Kenneth Shapiro, developed this year’s program, which is a production of The Music Center and PBS SoCal in association with CDK Productions.

HOSTS

SUZANNA GUZMÁN Suzanna Guzmán, mezzo-soprano, is a native of East Los Angeles and one of LA Opera’s original associate artists. She has appeared as a principal soloist with orchestras and opera houses around the world including the Metropolitan Opera, Washington National Opera, Dallas Opera, Opera de Genéve and San Diego Opera, to name a few. In 2019, Guzmán appeared in Ragnar Kjartansson’s epic work Bliss, the 12hour Mozart marathon, as Madame de la Halterre with Opera Del Wests acclaimed Cendrillon, and continues to hold the record for most female principal roles sung by an artist with LA Opera: over 400 performances. An advocate of arts education, Guzmán regularly performs her one-woman show, Don’t Be Afraid; It’s Just Opera! across the United States and is widely recognized for her mentorship to California students. Her acknowledgements include the 2012 Hispanic Scholarship Foundation’s Mentor of the Year Award, the 2012 Spirit of California Award from the State of California’s Latino Legislative Caucus, the 2013 Mexican American Foundation Award for Woman of the Year and the 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Nederlander Organization for her work in the arts and the community. Guzmán serves on the USC Thornton School of Music Board of Councilors, on UCLA’s Design for Sharing board, and received her honorary PhD in Music from Occidental College. She acted as host for the Emmynominated 59th , 60th and 61st annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration as

well as for the KCET television show Open Call, a showcase for Los Angeles’ vibrant arts community. During her tenure as director of community engagement for the L.A. County High School for the Arts, Guzmán helped develop programs that served over 13,000 K-12 students annually, bringing them to their first symphony, ballet and musical theatre performance.

BRIAN WHITE Brian White, back for his fifth year as co-host of the L.A. County Holiday Celebration, is an accomplished television, film actor and producer, most known for his roles on Showtime’s Ray Donovan, NBC’s Taken, NBC’s Chicago Fire and ABC’s Scandal as Kerry Washington’s love interest. White starred in and produced the feature films Howard High, Only for One Night, and 36 Hour Layover. After college, White was signed to the New England Patriots; however, his career was cut short due to injury. He then began a lucrative modeling career and co-founded a professional dance and theatre company, Phunk Phenomenon Urban Dance Theater Company, which uses the art of dance as a catalyst for youth outreach. “Phunk” has visited over 200 schools and has collaborated with MTV, the NBA, the WNBA and more; the company has performed with Britney Spears, TLC, Run DMC and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. While developing “Phunk,” White seized an opportunity to work on the television show Moesha in Los Angeles. This opportunity kick-started his acting career and allowed him to steadily grow in the entertainment industry.
