“The world’s most audaciously imaginative pop-jazz act” – JazzTimes (on Pink Martini) 

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of its very first performance on October 13, Portland’s sizzling “little orchestra,” Pink Martini, opens the Washington Performing Arts season with its trademark sound inspired by jazz, classical music, old-fashioned pop, and more. Britain’s Guardian hails them as “an international phenomenon…mixing glamour and sophisticated easy-listening.” The concert includes special guest appearances by Pink Martini’s good friend Meow Meow—the crowd-surfing Australian “tragi-comedienne” and chanteuse who “drags cabaret kicking and screaming into the 21st century” (Time Out, New York)—and NPR All Things Considered host and frequent Pink Martini collaborator Ari Shapiro.

Parental advisory: This performance may include some adult content.
