As part of our continuing partnership with Center Theatre Group, choreographer Cindera Che has been working with the cast of the musical number to prepare them for the event. No stranger to our students, Cindera has worked with dee-Lightful Productions, the local children’s musical theater program where many of our AVPA students have participated.
In addition to teaching artist Cindera Che, CCHS and AVPA alum Nehemiah Williams has come in to coach the band for the number. While a student in AVPA, Nehemiah played bass in the band for the premiere production of 13 at the Mark Taper Forum. He has subsequently attended the Berklee College of Music and plays as a professional freelance musician.
