2017 Blossom Music Festival
August 27 – Sunday at 7:00 p.m.
Capathia Jenkins’s career spans the arts of acting and music. Gripped with passion for each, she has refused to choose — because both represent her soul. She approaches a song the same way she approaches a script, like an artist. She looks for nuance in every detail, for the secrets hidden within the notes or text — intent on taking audiences on an unforgettable journey. Born and raised in Brooklyn, she most recently starred as Medda in the Disney production of Newsies on Broadway. She made her Broadway debut in The Civil War, where she created the role of Harriet Jackson, and subsequently starred in the Off-Broadway 2000 revival of Godspell. She returned to Broadway in The Look of Love and created the role of The Washing Machine in Caroline, Or Change. Her stage credits also include Nora Ephron’s Love, Loss, and What I Wore. As an active concert artist, Ms. Jenkins has appeared with orchestras across North America, from Minnesota to Cleveland, from Atlanta to Seattle, and from San Diego to Toronto, as well as appearing to acclaim in Europe. Her television credits include 30 Rock, The Practice, Law & Order, and The Sopranos. For more information, please visit www.capathiajenkins.com.
