Zoë Keating is a one-woman orchestra. She uses a cello and a foot-controlled laptop to record layer upon layer of cello, creating intricate, haunting and compelling music. Zoë is known for both her use of technology - which she uses to sample her cello onstage - and for her DIY ethic. She has sold over 40,000 copies of her albums without a record label, management or physical distribution. Zoë is also a governor of the San Francisco chapter of the Recording Academy, sits on the board of CASH Music and was named a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. Zoë has spent much of 2011 touring across North America, young baby in tow, to support her latest album, Into the Trees, which has spent 49 weeks on the Billboard classical charts, reaching #7. Zoë has performed and recorded with a wide range of artists, including Imogen Heap, Amanda Palmer, Curt Smith of Tears for Fears, DJ Shadow, John Vanderslice, Rasputina, Pomplamoose and Paolo Nutini. She is a regular collaborator with the creators of WNYC's Radiolab and is also known for her work in film. Commissions include music for the San Francisco MOMA's audio tour and soundtracks for the films Ghost Bird, The Devil's Chair and Frozen Angels. Her cello playing can be heard on Mark Isham's scores The Conspirator, Warrior and The Secret Life of Bees.

Emmy and Tony Award winner and Oklahoma Hall of Fame inductee, Kristin Chenoweth works in stage, television and film. She received rave reviews while starring in the ABC series Pushing Daisies, where she received an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Pushing Daisies was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and Emmy Award for "Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy". She has appeared in Fox's comedy Glee, where she played a former student who comes back to help re-energize the Glee club. She also starred as Annabeth Schott on the hit drama The West Wing and guest judged on American Idol. Many remember her show-stealing, Tony-winning performance in You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown and her triumphant star turn when she originated the role of Glinda the Good Witch in Wicked, which earned her a leading actress Tony Award nomination. In the fall, Chenoweth will star in the new ABC show, "Good Christian Belles" as Darlene, alongside Leslie Bibb and Annie Potts. Directed by Alan Poul, "Good Christian Belles" centers on a recently divorced mother of two who, to get a fresh start, moves back to the affluent Dallas neighborhood where she grew up to find herself in the whirling midst of salacious gossip, Botox, and fraud. Kristin's stage credits include: Kern and Hammerstein's rarely seen 1932 musical Music in the Air, the second Encores! production of New York City Center's 2008-09 season. She starred in Stairway to Paradise, an original Encores! production celebrating the great Broadway revue. Commemorating the centennial anniversary of the first Ziegfeld Follies, Kristin concluded New York City Center's 2007 season with beloved Broadway numbers from the early 20th century. Ms. Chenoweth starred in the critically successful and highly lauded limited-engagement of The Apple Tree at Roundabout Theatre Company's Studio 54 and also performed in the Broadway comedy Epic Proportions and in the Kander and Ebb musical Steel Pier, for which she won a Theatre World award.
