Las Vegas Philharmonic presents PINK MARTINI, 3/3
Las Vegas Philharmonic is proud to present the biggest little orchestra around - Pink Martini featuring lead singer China Forbes on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 8:00 pm in Reynolds Hall at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
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 fundraisers for causes such as civil rights, affordable housing, the environment, libraries, public broadcasting, education and parks.
Nine studio albums and more than two decades later, Pink Martini still tours the world, singing in 25 languages, performing along with symphonies at opera houses, concert halls, film festivals, museums and fashion shows.
The Pink Martini performance, which begins at 8:00 pm is also included in the Las Vegas Philharmonic's PHIL•NOM•E•NAL gala event that evening at The Smith Center. Starting at 5:00 pm, the Philharmonic will host a pre-concert Speakeasy, offering bootleg cocktails and small plate delicacies plus a silent auction followed by dinner on the fifth floor, live auction, entertainment and much more, ending with the Pink Martini concert. PHIL•NOM•E•NAL gala event pricing includes tiered sponsorship opportunities, ranging from $5,000 - $50,000, and individual tickets for $600 per person. For Gala ticket purchase and more information, call the Las Vegas Philharmonic at 702.462.2008 or visit http://www.lvphil.org/eventpage/phil-nom-e-nal-annual-gala/.
