Pink Martini

About This Concert:

You’re invited! Pink Martini mixes a fabulous cocktail of swoon-worthy music and multilingual flourishes for a performance that will be the talk of the town.

  • Minnesota Orchestra
  • Sarah Hicks, conductor
  • China Forbes, lead vocals
  • Pink Martini, ensemble

Fun Facts:

  • Pianist Thomas Lauderdale formed Pink Martini in 1994 in Portland to play at fundraisers for civil rights, environmental and educational causes.
  • Lauderdale describes Pink Martini as “a rollicking around-the-world musical adventure…if the United Nations had a house band in 1962, hopefully we’d be that band.”
  • Pink Martini albums feature a wide range of guest singers such as the Von Trapps (yes, the actual great-grandchildren of The Sound of Music’s Captain and Maria von Trapp), the late Phyllis Diller and Rufus Wainwright.
  • They’ve recorded in dozens of languages as varied as Turkish, Japanese, Romanian and Xhosa.
  • Lead singer China Forbes graduated cum laude from Harvard and her original songs have been featured in The Sopranos, The West Wing, Weeds, The L Word, Felicity and Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
  • NPR describes Pink Martini’s songs as “a globetrotting victory lap…all tackled with cosmopolitan sophistication and the playfulness of pop.”
