Founded in 1994 by bandleader and pianist Thomas Lauderdale, Pink Martini's "little orchestra" draws inspiration from the romantic Hollywood musicals of the 1940s and '50s and crosses genres to make an eclectic, modern sound. Their arrangements of Latin music, jazz, cabaret and cinema scores come together in a way that defies categorization, but is guaranteed to get the audience up out of their seats and dancing in the aisles.
Featuring a dozen musicians, Pink Martini has performed its multilingual repertoire on concert stages and with symphony orchestras throughout Europe, Asia, Greece, Turkey, the Middle East, Northern Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South America and North America. This concert will include popular favorites from the band's 24-year career, as well as songs from their latest release, "Je Dis Oui!," taking the audience on a musical journey from France to Iran, Armenia to South Africa and more.
Tickets to Pink Martini with China Forbes start at $35. Discounts are available to members of The Hanover Theatre and groups of 10 or more. Tickets are available online at TheHanoverTheatre.org, by phone at 877.571.SHOW (7469) or at The Hanover Theatre box office located at 2 Southbridge Street in downtown Worcester.
