The Grand in Oshkosh will open its curtain to some high energy next month as part of its first in-person performance since March.
B2wins, a Brazilian electric violin and ukulele duo, will perform a distanced show on Sept. 12 at 7:30 p.m. The twin brothers from Rio de Janiero bring a show that’s a mix of rock concert, jam session, dance party, stand-up comedy and motivational speaking. It’ll be The Grand’s first performance since March 13.
Those with some hesitancy can know The Grand put forth a solid safety plan.
With a distanced seating capacity of 223, each group of seats will be at least six feet apart. The theater’s new policies and procedures can be found at thegrandoshkosh.org.
Want an even safer option? A live stream ticket option will also be available in the coming weeks.
Walter and Wagner Caldas began playing classical music on violins their father hand-made. Using music as an escape from their violent and impoverished surroundings, they began teaching others in their neighborhood.
After their orchestra was featured on NPR, the twins were invited to the United States on music scholarships, knowing no English and having the equivalent of an eighth-grade education. Positivity and music have propelled them to defeat violence, poverty, depression, and cancer. Click here for a video preview.
