Singer-songwriter Rickie Lee Jones, a two-time Grammy Award winner, will play at the Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club in Bethesda on Sunday.
After starting her career in the late 1970s, Jones went on to grace the cover of Rolling Stone magazine twice in two years and played three songs as the musical guest of “Saturday Night Light,” which is unheard of today.
Jones is both a character in the songs and the songwriter singing, defying convention with her sometimes brazen sexuality and the mixed bag of jazz, rock and ‘confessional’ songwriter performances. Tickets for the show are $50. For more information, visit bethesdabluesjazz.com.
Over in College Park, as part of the National Orchestral Institute and Festival series, the UMD School of Music presents members of the NOI performing Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf,” at the Grand Pavilion at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. The family-friendly performance gives the performers an opportunity to share their own creative musical take on classic children’s books. There are two shows on Sunday, 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., and admission is free. For more information, visit theclarice.umd.edu.
Do you ever get chills? Do they multiply? Are you losing control? OK, OK, but chances are if you understood the first part of the sentence, then you’d definitely enjoy heading over to the Filene Center at Wolf Trap in Vienna on Saturday for the “Grease Sing-a-Long.” The show starts at 8:30 p.m. with the original 1978 movie projected in-house and on the lawn with lyrics on the screen — like you need lyrics anyway! For those hopelessly devoted to go to the show, goody bags filled with props will be distributed before the show. Tickets cost between $25 and $38. For more information, visit www.wolftrap.org.
