With an eclectic, whimsical charm and a repertoire spanning from jazz to classical to retro pop, the self-described “little orchestra” with lead singer China Forbes and special guest Ari Shapiro returns to D.C. for a highly anticipated reunion with the NSO. Enjoy an elegant evening of this unique ensemble's hallmark multilingual music, which traces its many influences through a boundary-breaking collection of cultures, times, and styles. The Telegraph raves: Pink Martini’s “songs swoosh past like fabulous gowns in a vintage fashion parade.”

Performance Timing: Approximately 2 hours, including one 15-minute intermission.

Note: Members of Pink Martini will sign CDs following all performances, in the Grand Foyer outside of the Concert Hall.
