"This is rich, hugely approachable music, utterly cosmopolitan yet utterly unpretentious.” - The Washington Post
Pink Martini will make its triumphant return to the Arsht Center’s Knight Concert Hall stage with an inimitable, multilingual repertoire performed by its renowned 12-piece orchestra, led by founder and artistic director Thomas Lauderdale, and breathtaking vocals by lead singer and songwriter China Forbes.
“Pink Martini is like a romantic Hollywood musical of the 1940s or ‘50s…but with a global perspective which is modern,” says Lauderdale. “We bring melodies and rhythms from different parts of the world together to create something which is new and beautiful.”
The Portland-based orchestra was founded in 1994 and has since achieved great success selling more than 2.5 million copies of their six albums showcasing their unique style of crossing musical genres such as classical, jazz and old-fashioned pop. Pink Martini will perform hits such as “Sympathique” and new music from their upcoming multilingual album, Get Happy.
