Even after 18 years as a popular performing act, Pink Martini defies easy classification. Formed in Portland in 1994 by pianist Thomas Lauderdale, the “little orchestra” began as a vanity project to produce music for political rallies. Joined by singer China Forbes in 1995, Lauderdale suddenly found he had a hit on his hands – winning fans for Pink Martini’s multi-lingual and wildly diverse repertoire. The band’s 1997 debut recording, Sympathetique, was a huge success in France, and the band won legions of fans in Japan, Greece, Turkey, and elsewhere. With a base of 13 members, the band frequently collaborates with artists as diverse as Rufus Wainwright, the von Trapp family, and Phyllis Diller, and it has performed with more than 50 orchestras around the world. The band’s eighth studio album, Dream A Little Dream, was released in 2014, and features performances by Wayne Newton and The Chieftans.
