• “Countess Coloratura” Coming to Ponycon and See You Soon, Cathy Spike!

    The cat may be out of the bag about Lena Hall's attendance thanks to a pre-mature press release, but Ponycon is here to give a more finalized, revised release and official convention art to welcome the Tony Award winning actress to the convention! Also details on autograph sessions with the singing pony.

    Not only that they have some sad news to deliver about Cathy Weseluck, unable to attend this February's event due to unforeseen commitments. We hope to see you next year Cathy!

    Check on after the break for the full presser.

    “Countess Coloratura” Coming to Ponycon and See You Soon, Cathy Spike!

    A truly special musical performance will take place at Ponycon that will include Tony Award winner and Grammy nominee Lena Hall. Hall will perform “The Magic Inside,” the song she sang in The Mane Attraction, episode 24 of season 5. Others performing at that event include more singing voices from My Little Pony- Ashleigh Ball, Peter New, Vincent Tong, Ingrid Nilson, Andrew Francis, Shannon Chan-Kent and Kazumi Evans. This performance will take place on Hearts and Hooves Day, Sunday February 14th at 1:00pm in the Mane Hall.

    Ponycon is the first opportunity to fans to meet the voice of Coloratura in person. Lena Hall will be signing autographs on Saturday February 13th from 11:00 am-12:30pm and Sunday February 14th from 3:00pm - 4:30pm. Be on the lookout for a razzle dazzle-worthy merchandise release from Packbreakers, just in time for the show!
