Theresa Calpotura
Stephanie Sampang
Tonilyn Sideco

Theresa Calpotura has performed in numerous venues throughout the US and the Philippines.  She has won a number of awards from associations such as the National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts and the American String Teachers Association, and received scholarships from the Oberlin Conservatory and the Yale School of Music. Ms. Calpotura studied with the renowned guitar pedagogue Scott Cmiel of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and graduated from the Oberlin Conservatory where she studied with versatile guitarist/composer Stephen Aron. She then continued at the Yale School of Music with creative guitarist/composer Benjamin Verdery. Ms. Calpotura has given masterclasses in the US and in the Philippines and is currently on faculty at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music Preparatory Division.  In addition to her solo work, Ms. Calpotura founded the groundbreaking cello-guitar duo Ethos with cellist Susan Millar.  She has studied the lute with Christopher Morrongiello of the Venere Lute Quartet, jazz guitar with Tony Romano, and has participated in several masterclasses with guitarists such as John Williams, Sharon Isbin, Antigoni Goni, David Tanenbaum, Mark Teicholz, David Leisner, Scott Tennant, Nicholas Goluses, Julian Gray, Ronald Pearl, Lily Afshar, Stanley Yates, John Holmquist and Benjamin Verdery.

She recently released her debut CD project, Kanta Filipina (VGO Recordings VG1018).  The 12 original, arranged and transcribed works for solo guitar, all created for her by Filipino-American composer Bayani Mendoza de Leon, are the culmination of three years of intense research and collaboration. All of the works convey a uniquely Filipino spirit that Ms. Calpotura hopes to continue to look for and express in her music.

Stephanie Sampang
Born and bred in the Bay Area, Stephanie began singing at family parties at a young age and has loved every minute of it.  Her love for theater and song was cemented while working with Kularts, Intersection for the Arts, and as an active participant in numerous cultural productions at UC Berkeley.   She was the UC Berkeley Pilipino American Alliance Co-Cultural Chairperson for 2003-04 and currently lead female vocal for the Tenderonies - a live 80's and 90's cover band that included members from the all male group Legaci - who currently tour with tween pop sensation Justin Bieber.  She is very excited and honored to be performing with fellow Pinay artists and wants to congratulate Kularts for an amazing 25 years!

Tonilyn A. Sideco is a heartworker, singer, songwriter, filmmaker, performing artist and native San Franciscan. Dedicated to inspiring systemic social change, Toni enjoys breaking people out of their idleness through music, theater, and filmmaking with the Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project and Shifting Narratives. She shared her queer pilipin@ pride playing the role of Cee in âTranslations,â a play that debuted at the 2009 National Queer Arts Festival. Recently, he has performed her original songs at Come Together (a benefit for hate crime survivor, Richmond Jane Doe), Snappy Hour (Mama Calizoâs Voice Factoryâs one-month residency at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts), BLISS Weekend (a national annual gathering of women of color and their allies in Palm Springs), and at Alive n Kickin (a FUNKraiser for Bindlestiff Studio, S.F.).

Tonilyn's sound is R&B Pop/Soul, heavily influenced by church hymns, Motown, pop power-divas, and musical theater. Expect lyrics that are honest, flirtatious, and a little bit romantic. Whether singing a love ballad or shaking what her mama gave her, Toniâs voice will leave you swooning. Check her out in Left of Oz, a full-length Broadway style musical comedy playing at Ashby Stage, Berkeley July 2-18th.
