Pink Martini: Ann Arbor Summer Festival.:

This polished Portland-based 12-member cabaret ensemble brings a contagious sense of fun to its fizzy cocktail of Cuban and Brazilian jazz, songs from foreign movies, and torchy cabaret songs ranging from a noir version of “Que Sera, Sera” to its original signature song “Let’s Never Stop Falling in Love.” Lead vocalist China Forbes sings English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Greek, and Croatian lyrics in a lush, caramel alto voice. The New York Times calls her “an unpretentious, pitch-perfect chanteuse who can be breathy and girlish or sultry [and who] tempers heartbreak with savoir-faire.” 8 p.m., Power Center. Mask & proof of vaccination (or negative Covid test within past 72 hours) required. Tickets $50$71 in advance at a2sf.org and (if available) at the door.
