Ethan Lipton & his Orchestra

Rescheduled from 3/14

Jun 11, 2020

The Kimmel Cultural Campus remains closed following the guidelines of the Philadelphia Department of Public Health which advises residents against participating in social gatherings of any size during this "Yellow Safer-At-Home Phase." Ticket holders will be emailed about the status of their performance as details are confirmed. Please view our FAQ for further information.


The quartet Ethan Lipton & his Orchestra has been playing together since 2005 and has released four studio albums. In 2017, the band was nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award for its show “The Outer Space,” produced by the Public Theater in Joe’s Pub and first developed in the Kimmel Center’s summer residency program. The band’s earlier theatrical song cycle, “No Place to Go,” won an Obie Award and has toured the U.S. and Europe. Comprised of Eben Levy (guitar), Ian Riggs (bass), Vito Dieterle (sax) and Ethan Lipton (vocals), the band is based in New York.

NPR’s “Weekend Edition” called Lipton's songs “twisted, sophisticated, schleppy and sad all at once,” and New York Magazine once dubbed the band NYC’s "Best Lounge Act.” Recently, the band played at SF Jazz and Pitchfork Paris, and was featured on Amazon's “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” Previous appearances include MASS MoCA, Dublin’s Pavilion Theatre, the Gate in London, and ATP. Lipton is also a playwright who co-wrote the book for “Lashed But Not Leashed” with Philly’s own Martha Graham Cracker.
