When You Wish Upon a Star: The Songs of Disney

  • Windham Civic Centre Concert Hall 5379 New York 23 Windham, NY, 12496 United States (map)

You haven't heard Disney songs like this before! Hear The Ladybugsled by vocalist Martina DaSilva, breathe fresh life into songs from such classic Disney films as Cinderella, Robin Hood, The Jungle Book, Sleeping Beauty, and more. 

In all of contemporary music, the Ladybugs are easily one of my favorite things. The emerging genre generally known as the new hot jazz, has no shortage of artists who are talented, imaginative, attractive, and ridiculously young. But even by that standard, the Ladybugs stand out as a vocal duo that is both charming and musically substantial in equal portions.”
— Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal

Co-presented by 23Arts Windham Summer Music & Jazz Festival. Read more HERE.

About The Ladybugs: The Ladybugs are a traditional jazz vocal group known for their intricate harmonies and experimental arrangements. Led by Martina DaSilva, all members of the band sing while playing ukulele, guitar, trombone, bass, and drums. The Ladybugs’ repertoire includes favorites from the 1920s, ‘30s, and ‘40s, infused with swing, country, blues, and latin music. The band has received high praise for recent performances at Jazz At Lincoln Center’s Generations in Jazz Festival, the NY Hot Jazz Festival, and the NYC Winter Jazzfest. With an uplifting sound that attracts all audiences, The Ladybugs effortlessly keep listeners smiling and moving. In September 2015, The Ladybugs released their debut self- titled album to rave reviews.
