Tricia Sebastian originally from Corpus Christi, Texas, performs and records bilingual children’s music. Her CD Canta Conmigo, has been featured in other children’s compilations CDs and the song “El Chocolate” was rerecorded in New York City for a national ad campaign for Quaker’s Chocolate Comes to Life Cereal. The song was also aired on ABC’s hit sitcom Ugly Betty. The Chicago Tribune says, “Sebastian's playful, robust soprano could spark a Tex-Mex campfire; her CD Canta Conmigo crackles with classical guitar and hand percussion.” Tricia's latest release Corazon Alegre is a collection of traditional and original tunes with a fusion of world rhythms. As an educator, Tricia has been working with Ravinia Festival's Outreach Discovery Program since 1997 teaching music to children around Chicago in schools with underdeveloped art programs. She also works with the Old Town School of Folk Music since 1995 teaching Bilingual Wiggleworms, and an assortment of adult classes over the years. In the past, she directed the Estudiantina Corpus Christi ensemble at Texas A&M in CC, TX and taught at two private middle schools. She has toured extensively in Mexico, Span, and United States and continues to perform and record in the Chicagoland area wherever else called on. - See more at:
