LOS ANGELES COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS ABOUT THE CELEBRATION

As Los Angeles’ largest multicultural holiday celebration, the 63rd 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 Music Center’s 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 1952 to 1992. 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 delight 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; the Honorable Lindsey P. Horvath, Third District; the Honorable Janice Hahn, Fourth District, Chair; 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: Helen Hernandez and Leticia Rhi Buckley (First District); Pamela Bright-Moon, Patrisse Cullors and Randi Tahara (Second District); Constance Jolcuvar, Madeline Di Nonno and Rosalind Wyman (Third District); Anita Ortiz, Eric R. Eisenberg and Sandra P. Han (Fourth District); and Alis Clausen Odenthal, Liane Weintraub and Jennifer Price-Letscher (Fifth District).

While more than 4,000 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 6 p.m. and on KCET at 11 p.m. KCET will re-broadcast the show on Sunday, December 25, at 6 p.m.

The 60th and 62nd Annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration were named winners of a 2020 and 2022 Los Angeles Emmy® Award for Live Special Events & Programming. The same Emmy-winning team, led by the program’s 28-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 is a mezzosoprano, TV and radio host and principal soloist with orchestras and opera houses around the world. Fresh from a sold-out run of Ventura’s Rubicon Theatre Company’s critically-acclaimed production of In The Heights in the role of Abuela Claudia, Guzmán reached international attention for the title role in Bizet’s Carmen, (“Fire-breathing, singing actress, devastingly sexy.” TIME magazine). She is a champion of premiere works, creating The Dutchess for the Kennedy Center Menotti’s Goya, Paula in Daniel Catan’s Florencia en el Amazonas, Lucha for the Industry Opera’s Hopscotch and Sheila for Eric Whitacre’s Gift of the Magi, to name a few.

Honors include two-time L.A.-area Emmy® Award winner (2019 & 2021) for Co-Host of the L.A.

CANDICE HEIDEN

Candice Heiden, a Southern California native Latina, began

creating and expressing herself through movement from an early age. Growing up in the local skating rink, Heiden found herself competing at six years old as a classicallytrained roller and ice figure skater. She eventually became a five-time Team USA member, World Games silver medalist and 17-time U.S. National champion. Her passion for roller skating has led to amazing opportunities working both in front of and behind the camera internationally as a skate/stunt coordinator, movement coach, choreographer and celebrity skate trainer.

Heiden has worked with a number of popular artists and celebrities including Salma Hayek, Owen Wilson, Kevin Hart, Leslie Jordan, Gwen Stefani, Snoop Dogg, Alicia Keys, Maroon 5, Katy Perry, The Kardashians, Tommy Hilfiger, Norah Jones, and Sigala and Nile Rogers. Her work has also been featured on shows like The Masked Singer, America’s Got Talent , Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Stranger Things, Physical, Goliath and in films like Bliss, Valley Girl, and “she’s so bringing roller skating to Bollywood” in The Archies, releasing in 2023.
