Pink Martini has always been an intriguing musical cocktail, an artisanal mix of jazz, retro lounge music and witty homages to the film scores of the '40s and '50s. But now their sound has been spiked by an altogether unexpected ingredient: the von Trapp family singers. These new von Trapps, descendants of the original apple-cheeked, Nazi-escaping von Trapps of The Sound of Music fame, join the likes of Rufus Wainwright, Joey Arias, Michael Feinstein and Hiroshi Wada as distinguished Pink Martini collaborators. Together, the young singers and the Portland-based orchestra recently released an acclaimed album, Dream a Little Dream, a smorgasbord of classic and brand new songs. Now both will journey to the Kennedy Center where Pink Martini will pick up where it left off after its sold-out 2011 engagement with the NSO Pops. Learn More
When you go to an event at the Kennedy Center, make certain to see what is playing at the Millenium Stage. A free performance is offered at 6:00 every night. I saw a wonderful set of Broadway show tune sung by very talented students from Catholic University.NSO: Koh Plays Barber info • Nov 01 2013 star this tip starred

Ravi Shankar, sitar
Anoushka Shankar, sitar
A living legend, Ravi Shankar is known as “the godfather of world music.” Credited with introducing Western audiences to India’s intricate classical music, Shankar shares the stage with his daughter Anoushka, who is “the purest of her father’s disciples, musically formed entirely in his image” (The New York Times). The father-daughter duo has “a bond that comes up only onstage,” Ms. Shankar has said. “It’s spiritual…and it’s the beautiful music and the excitement.”
