Meet the performers: Tim Gibbs Zehnder and Tom Zehnder. Singer-songwriters Tim and Tom, aka The Boyz, have been performing together pretty much forever and have been at Immanuel for something like 20 years. You never know where they will turn up–they recently concluded a lengthy engagement at Lyfe Kitchen! They are also regulars at Ghost Ranch conference grounds and are well-known on the festival and conference circuit. Their arrangements and original music are standard fare at Immanuel. They’ve cooked up some razzle-dazzle contributions to our opening event on September 7. Don’t miss it!
Meet the performers: Emiliano Almeida. Emiliano, aka The Latin Heat, has been our drummer in residence for over ten years. Instantly adapting to whatever we throw at him, he is the rhythmic backbone of much of our music. Emiliano is a proud native of Argentina. He gigs all over town, operates a professional quality recording studio from his home, and is a celebrity spokesperson for Paiste percussion instruments. He is a regular member of Zehnder the Band, and will be performing with them and with Jonathan Hernandez on our September 7 concert. Don’t miss it!
Meet the performers: Jonathan Hernandez. Jonathan has been leading the singing in our Spanish services for a long time now. He also has a similar role at All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena. His energy and charisma are infectious! A native of Costa Rica, Jonathan is also a U.S. Army veteran. He gigs all over town, so if you haven’t run into him already, you probably will! A talented singer-songwriter, Jonathan will be performing his own music on our kick-off event on Sunday, September 7. Don’t miss it!
Meet the performers: Elyse Willis. The lovely and talented Elyse has been with us for almost seven years. Her beautiful voice, versatility, rocking musicianship, and sparkling personality are irresistible. Elyse keeps busy on the L.A. music scene singing with the Los Angeles Master Chorale and Jouyssance among many others, and may also be found doing studio session work. She’ll be singing music by Ned Rorem and others on our kick-off event on Sunday, September 7. Don’t miss it!
