The El Dorado Community Concert Association announces this acclaimed artistic duo as part of their 2016 - 2017 Concert Season.
Rarely, if ever, can you experience such an amalgam of musical expression as is the musical act known as Kubecca. Come be a part of this musical odyssey at 3 p.m. Sunday at El Dorado High School Auditorium, 401 McCollum Road. Doors will open to the public at 2:30.
Two world-class musicians, acclaimed Broadway musical vocalist and a spectacular Vibraphone virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist, now married, are enjoying great success as an onstage duo at venues across the United States, as well as internationally.
Kuba Kawnik, originally from Poland, began his musical career at the age of four. Although he is best known for his performance on vibraphone, he has also mastered some unusual and difficult instruments, including the Theremin - a rare and complex contemporary invention accessible to but a very few artists worldwide.
Rebecca Lowe is best known for her roles in the musicals Evita and Jekyll & Hyde. Booked right out of college, and as the youngest actress to perform the role of Eva Peron in Evita, she received standing ovations and critical acclaim throughout North America and Europe. Experience these exceptionally gifted artists and enjoy an exciting show, brimming with breathtaking virtuosity and pure fun.
