Pink Martini, a 12-piece “little orchestra” known internationally for its original mix of sultry Latin tunes, Cuban marches, French ballads and classical chamber music performs Sunday, September 20, 2009 at 8 p.m. at the Henderson Pavilion, 200 South Green Valley Parkway. Ticket prices start at $30.
“Pink Martini’s music will appeal to audiences of all ages,” said Andrea Primo, Director of the Cultural Arts & Tourism Department. “Their unique eclectic sound will take you on a musical journey spanning across the globe.”
Dubbed “vintage-chic” by The New York Times, Pink Martini’s multi-lingual repertoire is a throwback to the golden-era of yesteryear with a 21st century makeover. The band features lead singer China Forbes, who sings with charming authenticity in 14 different languages, including French, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Arabic and English.
Founded in 1994 by classically trained pianist Thomas Lauderdale, Pink Martini’s multilingual albums – “Sympathique,” “Hang on Little Tomato” and “Hey Eugene!” – have sold nearly two million copies worldwide. Nominated for “Song of the Year” and “Best New Artist” in France’s Victoires de la Musique awards, “Sympathique” has gone Platinum in France and Gold in Greece.
Pink Martini has toured throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the United States, and has performed alongside numerous symphony orchestras including the Boston Pops, Los Angeles Philharmonic, BBC Orchestra (London) and Orchestre National d’lle de France (Paris). In addition, the group has had their own television program air on PBS, and they have been featured on the Late Show with David Letterman.
