Nevenka Folk Ensemble is a women’s chorus performing traditional Eastern European music. The multi-generational ensemble was formed in 1976 by women who shared a common interest in the complex harmonies and compelling rhythms of Balkan music.

Their repertoire includes songs from Albania, Armenia, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Russia, Ukraine, and from the Ladino Sephardic and Romani cultures.

Amphitheater: 5–5:45pm & 6:15–7pm

LALA Brass: Taking influences from New Orleans’ second line, hip hop, latin, pop, rock, and everything in between, their music embodies the ideal of collaboration and reinvents familiar genres and sounds. Led by tuba player Bobby Murray, they have been sharing their music since 2016, and built an eclectic group of talented musicians from a variety of different backgrounds.

With their music, they hope to inspire others to express themselves with confidence and vulnerability. LALA aims to create a platform where everyone feels like they belong.
