Washington Performing Arts Presents: Tenthing

November 29, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EST


Ring in the season with a festive blend of holiday favorites and brass classics!
Enjoy a sizzling, toe-tapping start to your holiday season with the energetic sound of tenThing. Led by the “sparkling, passionate, and highly virtuosic” (BBC) Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth, the 10-piece, all-female brass band (whose name is pronounced “ten ting”) take the Sixth & I stage with a program mingling beloved holiday songs from Europe and America with classic show tunes. A breakout hit at the 2011 Norwegian Grammy Awards, tenThing went on to delight audiences at the BBC Proms in London and have gone on to perform in many of the world’s most prominent venues and festivals. Throughout the world, their performances have been celebrated for equal parts astounding artistry and infectious fun–as you can discover for yourself this November, right at the start of the holiday season.
