Meet Adassa

As a bilingual Afro-Latino voice actress, singer, and songwriter, Adassa’s work spans from animation to arena performances at Madison Square Garden. Known for her Latin-infused dance-pop music, she has released several albums throughout her career. Her dynamic 4-octave vocal range and artistry have resulted in features in and performances of songs with Pitbull, Ciara, and Snoop Dogg, among others. She has also had commercial roles with brands like Toyota and Proctor & Gamble’s Secret.

Meet the Temple Hill Symphony Orchestra

Jay Trottier, Music Director

One only needs a brief conversation or a snippet of rehearsal to recognize Jay’s overwhelming passion for music. Influenced by his mother who sang in the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square, he began piano lessons at the age of eight and pursued clarinet and oboe in high school and college. He exercised his vocal cords as Captain von Trapp in The Sound of Music and Professor Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady, as well as serving as music director of The Music Man in community productions. Jay founded and conducted the Solano Community Symphony 30 years ago, and began directing the Temple Hill Symphony Orchestra in 2012. Though he has been instructed by Robert Lenz, assistant director of the Utah Symphony, and Denis de Coteau, director of the San Francisco Ballet, his greatest teacher has been his heart – he simply feels music!
Jay and his wife Becky are parents of four children and live in Fairfield, California.
