Concert Series: PINK MARTINI WITH LEAD SINGER CHINA FORBES
THURSDAY, JULY 13 | THE TABERNACLE
2nd Annual Inaugural Concert Series featuring top artists in intimate settings:
Drawing inspiration from music from all over the world – crossing genres of classical, jazz and old-fashioned pop – Thomas Lauderdale founded Pink Martini in 1994 to provide more beautiful and inclusive musical soundtracks for political fund-raisers for causes such as civil rights, affordable housing, the environment, libraries, public broadcasting, education and parks.
Featuring a dozen musicians, Pink Martini performs its multilingual repertoire on concert stages and with symphony orchestras globally. Pink Martini made its European debut at the Cannes Film Festival in 1997 and its orchestral debut with the Oregon Symphony in 1998 under the direction of Norman Leyden. Since then, the band has gone on to play with more than 50 orchestras around the world, including multiple engagements with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, the Sydney Symphony at the Sydney Opera House, and the BBC Concert Orchestra at Royal Albert Hall in London. In its twentieth year, Pink Martini was inducted into both the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame and the Oregon Music Hall of Fame.
Pink Martini is featuring lead vocals from China Forbes, a Harvard classmate of Lauderdale’s. They have written many of Pink Martini’s most beloved songs including “Sympathique,” “Lilly,” and “Over the Valley”. With Pink Martini, China has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She has performed songs in over twelve languages and performed in venues from Carnegie Hall to the Grand Rex in Paris. She is thrilled to be back on stage signing every chance she gets.
