Meet the Artists

Jasmine Rice LaBeija

Jasmine Rice LaBeija is one of the most iconic and respected nightlife entertainers in New York City. She has had a hold on the drag scene since Pride of 2012, and she is now the International Godmother of the Royal Iconic House of LaBeija. In 2017, she was one of the main cast members on the documentary series Shade: Queens of NYC on Fusion network. She was later a host of Dragged, which won a Shorty Award in Diversity & Inclusion for Verizon’s network In The Know. She was the face of 2020 New York City Pride and a featured artist at the Guggenheim Museum. More recently, she was featured in a short film called Inside & Outwards, narrated by Sarah Jessica Parker, which won an Emmy Award. In 2022, she was a main cast member of a short film which premiered at the Tribeca film festival. Aside from her drag career, LaBeija is also an opera singer and a graduate of The Juilliard School. In 2022, she made her San Diego debut at the Rady Shell at Jacobs Park with the San Diego Symphony, as a special guest soloist with Broadway and television star Megan Hilty, conducted by Rob Fisher. This year, LaBeija was invited to both the Guggenheim Museum and Lincoln Center to give her solo recital. She recently made her off-Broadway debut staring as Hillary Clinton in Five: The Parody Musical. She continues to further her career in both opera and drag, and she performs around the world.

Lachlan Glen, piano

Lachlan Glen is a collaborative pianist and entrepreneur who enjoys a varied career performing with his favorite artists and friends — from Ben Bliss to Susan Graham, legendary NYC drag queen Jasmine Rice LaBeija to pop/folk star Rufus Wainwright, and iconic artists from times gone by including Richard Bonynge and Renata Scotto. 

His adventures have taken him from The Juilliard School and the Met Opera to the Italian Alps and the Australian outback; from NYC nightclubs to the podium of a major orchestra (yes, just one); to university classrooms, podcast studios, recording studios, and performance venues around the world. 

Additionally, he founded and ran a non-profit organization, “MESS” (Mise-En-Scène Studios) for four years, raising over $400,000 to reimagine the business and performance model of classical music, and hiring 90+ young artists to perform in intimate settings around NYC. 

He speaks eight languages (four of them computer languages) and has enjoyed a simultaneous career in the tech industry, having worked in positions from Software Engineer to CTO at various startups in FinTech, AdTech, Blockchain, and AI. 

All of this, however, takes a backseat to his primary occupation as a family man, and he enjoys nothing more than spending time with his husband Sam and young twins, Alice and William, who bring him into the present moment every day.
