Editor’s note: Director’s Chair is a weekly column where Kris Sabel, who is in charge of cultural programming for the Vail Valley Foundation, gives his expert take on shows not to be missed.
On Tuesday we present The Lowe Family Holiday Spectacular. Who is the Lowe Family you ask? They are one of the most talented families performing in show business today. This family of nine has been presenting their show to sold-out audiences in Branson, Missouri for the past 10 years and it is one of the hottest tickets in town.
Three generations of Lowe’s have been entertaining audiences for more than 25 years. This current tour features mom LeeAndra and dad Robert along with seven siblings. You need to read each of their biographies to get the full scope of their talents but believe me, this family does it all. Between them they play 50 instruments and in the show expect to see and hear not one but two grand piano’s, marimba, harp, drum kit, bagpipes, mandolin, banjo, trumpet, the Irish pennywhistle, bohdran and, at one point, at least five siblings playing violin. Beyond their abilities on all of these instruments, they also sing, dance and act. Several have won national ballroom dancing competitions, performed as soloists with national orchestras, acted on film and done voice over work for film and television. And this does not begin to touch the surface of their other interests and hobbies. It makes me feel like an underachiever.
In the words of entertainment reporter Julie Kilmer “THINK COLOSSAL. Then think beyond. Only then do you have an idea of the titanic amount of talent within the musical Lowe Family.”
