(May 10) PIANO POLL Emerging Estonian pianist Mihkel Poll will prove that the classics are far from played out in a free concert tonight at the Corcoran Gallery in Northwest DC. The 24-year-old tackles Ravel, Shostakovich, and a number of Estonian composers with the panache of a seasoned piano man.

(May 10-31) CABARET [re]REVOLTAIRE You can cap off your Monday nights in May with a cornucopia of creativity, as the Washington Project for the Arts and The Pink Line Project present Cabaret [re]ReVoltaire in the courtyard of Gallery O on H in Northeast DC. The four evenings of art, poetry and performance kick off tonight at 6 p.m.

(May 10) BLUES ALLEY ROBIN After two albums a-buzz with traditional jazz, songstress Robin McKelle is branching out. The contralto combines R&B and soul with her established sound tonight at 8 and 10 at Blues Alley in Georgetown.
