Rachel Handman & Keve Wilson: Let’s Hear It For Broadway Musicians!
May 15, 2022
Returning to Feinstein’s/54 Below for a 5th time by popular demand! Friends since the age of 10, Rachel Handman (violin) and Keve Wilson (oboe) dazzle audiences with their combined electric dynamic that instantly ignites the room. Playing unique arrangements of familiar tunes, they grew up dreaming of performing on Broadway, and spent every Saturday studying at Manhattan School of Music as teenagers, where they would skip music theory to practice showtunes and Irish jigs and reels instead. Having realized that Broadway dream, they recently wrapped up a seven-month run performing together in the orchestra for the 2018 Broadway revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel. Other Broadway shows they have played include Company, West Side Story, Something Rotten!, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder and Dr. Zhivago, among others. From Hyde Park, New York, Rachel and Keve have developed a concert showcasing their interest in music from around the world. They continue to transcend genres with unique and creative repertoire, and weave personal tales from their life-long friendship throughout the evening.
They are joined by special guest Wayne DuMaine (The Music Man) their band, Hidayat Honari (Beetlejuice) on guitar, Marc Schmied (Kimberly Akimbo) on bass, and Wilson Torres (MJ: The Michael Jackson Musical) on drums.
