Not to be missed this week: Alfresco tunes at Woodland Park Zoo.
We can think of no better way to spend an August evening than listening to live tunes under the summer sky. Seeking plans for this week? Well, this suggestion might just be music to your ears. While many ZooTunes shows sold out early, tickets remain for Tuesday and Wednesday (August 2nd and 3rd), and Pink Martini promises to put on a fun and dazzling show. Pack a picnic, and we’ll see you in the field!
Featuring a dozen musicians, Pink Martini performs its multilingual repertoire on concert stages and with symphony orchestras around the globe. The group made its European debut at the Cannes Film Festival in 1997 and its orchestral debut with the Oregon Symphony in 1998 under the direction of Norman Leyden. Since then, the band has played with more than 50 orchestras, and we can’t wait to welcome them to one of our favorite Seatttle lawns.
Buy tickets here, and peruse ZooTunes’ FAQs before you go. The doors open at 5 p.m. (or once the band’s finished sound check). Get ready to have some talented folks provide your night’s entertainment in a lovely, tranquil setting. See you there!
