NMWA Fall Benefit

6:30 p.m. Cocktails
7:00 p.m. Dinner
Every year NMWA gathers a VIP audience that includes luminaries from Washington’s diplomatic, government, and social circles to recognize important women artists from all artistic fields. On November 4, NMWA will host “An Evening of Entertainment Honoring Kate Baldwin and Tina Fabrique” in our beautiful Great Hall.
Kate Baldwin was nominated for the 2010 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her performance in the Broadway revival of Finian’s Rainbow. Ms. Baldwin made her Broadway debut in The Full Monty before going on to star in Thoroughly Modern Millie, Wonderful Town, and, most recently, London’s Paradise Found. She made her Washington, DC, debut in Arena Stage’s 2002 production of South Pacific, for which she received a Helen Hayes nomination for Best Leading Actress in a Resident Musical.
Tina Fabrique has received critical acclaim for her portrayal of Ella Fitzgerald in Ella, a bio-musical of the legendary jazz singer, since the show’s creation in 2005. Prior to Ella, she performed on Broadway in the hit shows Truly Blessed, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Bring in ’da Noise, Bring in ’da Funk, and Ragtime. Ms. Fabrique has also performed at the Grammy Awards and sang the original theme song for Reading Rainbow on PBS.
Proceeds from the Fall Benefit support the Museum and the Shenson Chamber Music Concerts, one of the most popular programs on the Museum’s annual calendar now in its thirteenth year. This exceptional international music series presents four free recitals annually that highlight professional women performers.
