The Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies is a proud sponsor of the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra’s next performance with Alex Cuba.

“Listening to Alex Cuba’s music is like getting a coat of sunshine applied to your eardrums.” With a prospect like that, you’re going to want to experience this special performance with a multi-award winning artist, appearing with a full symphony orchestra!

Cuban/Canadian singer/songwriter Alex Cuba appears with the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra on Friday, April 1 at the Kelowna Community Theatre (also available by livestream), and on Saturday, April 2 at the Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre. You won’t want to miss this show!

Though raised in Artemisa, an hour outside of Havana, Alex Cuba’s artistry is as far-flung as the place he has settled and lived for over fifteen years: Smithers, BC. His music at once incorporates his roots and is a unique amalgam of styles, having collaborated with artists ranging from Jason Mraz to Ron Sexsmith and Nelly Furtado; and bringing together melodies, popsoul hooks and rock chords in songs that may seem to bear little resemblance to traditional Cuban form.

A forward-thinking, indie-minded artist, Alex has amassed a steadily growing following among critics and fans, with over 20 awards and nominations to his name, including four Latin Grammys, two Junos Awards and three Grammy nominations.

Tickets: Adult $70.00; Senior $59.50; Student $35.00

“Wicked guitar, undeniably soulful vocals. His package is simplicity and he wears it well” —
