DECLASSIFIED: Carnival of Sins featuring Storm Large & Hudson Shad with the National Symphony Orchestra

DECLASSIFIED: Carnival of Sins featuring Storm Large & Hudson Shad with the National Symphony Orchestra @ Kennedy Center Concert Hall
A lead singer with Pink Martini, Storm Large is a "sensational" (The New York Times) entertainer in her own right. She performs cabaret songs plus Kurt Weill's wickedly delightful The Seven Deadly Sins in concert with all-male vocal quartet Hudson Shad. Led by "talented young American conductor" (The New York Times) James Gaffigan, the program also includes Richard Rodgers's fanciful Carousel Waltz. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ABOUT DECLASSIFIED: FRIDAYS AT 9 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The secret is out! Some of the NSO's Friday night programs are taking on a whole new vibe with a fresh mix of sound and vision plus exciting pre- and post-concert activities, all at a great price. For the 2015–2016 season, the NSO has "unlocked" some of its standard Friday programs and opened them up to fresh concepts in concert-going with DECLASSIFIED: Fridays at 9. Not your typical Concert Hall experience, these late evenings will include an eclectic mix of classic and modern sounds, special guest artists, dynamic multimedia, audience interaction, and pre- and/or post-performance activities. They'll begin at 9 p.m. (an hour later than usual) and last 60–75 minutes (shorter than a typical program), all at a great price for making memorable nights out with a date or a group of friends! If you heard about the NSO's concert at D.C.'s Echostage in January 2015, you'll know exactly what to expect at these new concerts: - Come as you are: straight from work, in jeans, or whatever suits your fancy. Be ready to move! - Arrive early and/or stay after the concert for added fun to be announced--each night will be a different experience. - Grab drinks or snacks anytime and bring them back into the Concert Hall. - Most importantly, open your mind to a music experience where anything can happen! Performance Timing: Approximately 85 minutes, with no intermission
