Celeste Lanuza is a New York based singer, songwriter, and multidimensional artist that embodies power and spirit through memorable melodies fusing Pop, Latin, and Jazz. Armed with a versatile sound, dynamic and strong stage presence, Lanuza brings you a night to remember celebrating life through her original music co-written by herself and her father, Federico Lanuza. Federico collaborates with his daughter to transport you to another space, as his compositions did in the Academy Award-nominated film In the Name of the People and at The Old Globe Theater’s The Fan Lights/Los Soles Truncos.
Expect a full band and music featured from a new Mexican-American musical she’s working on with her father and is excited to produce in the coming year. Music for this performance will also be featured from her LA Music Award-nominated album and published EP, as well as new music she is releasing later this year. Lanuza is a quadruple threat, having performed lead roles in musicals and operas around the US, while continuing to gain inspiration from empowering the human spirit. She enjoys incorporating her skill as a pianist, dancer, and choreographer in her musical productions, and upon request by the Guthrie Theater, she performed her original music on their MainStage after performing at Radio City Music Hall and on NPR’s Tiny Desk.
