The Cultural Arts Coalition presents: Rachel and Keve on Sunday, November 18th at 3:00PM at the Studio Around the Corner
Friends since the age of 10, Rachel Handman (violin) and Keve Wilson (oboe) grew up dreaming of performing on Broadway someday. Spending every Saturday studying at Manhattan School of Music as teenagers, they would skip music theory and practice Irish jigs and reels instead. Having realized that dream, they recently wrapped up a seven-month run performing in the orchestra for the 2018 Broadway revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel. Other Broadway shows they have played include Something Rotten!, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder and Dr. Zhivago. From Hyde Park, New York, Rachel and Keve have developed a concert showcasing their interest in music from around the world. Rachel spent a year playing violin in Bolivia while Keve toured Germany, and they enjoy coming together to create and share new tunes they can play without sheet music. They continue to transcend genres with unique and creative repertoire, and weave personal tales from their life-long friendship throughout their concerts. In NYC, Keve and Rachel played to packed houses at Feinstein’s/54 Below in both 2017 and 2018. On November 18th, 2018, they will be joined by special guests Jeff Marder (piano) and Mike Kobetitsch (guitar).
The program will include works by: Astor Piazzolla, J.S. Bach, Cenovia Cummins, YAZ and traditional music from countries including Venezuela and Ireland.
Tickets: $20 for adults, and $15 for students
