Pink Martini with the ISO

November 17, 2010

Hilbert Circle Theatre

What language will the next song be sung in? You never know when Pink Martini is on stage. Cosmopolitan playfulness in style and song has been a signature for the Portland, Ore.-based company since it was founded more than 15 years ago by vocalist China Forbes and pianist Thomas Lauderdale.

Surrounded by accomplished musicians—who also like dressing up—the band will be joining the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra for its one-night-only Indy debut. “For me,” says Lauderdale, “Pink Martini is partially an attempt to rebuild a culture which sings and dances.”
Here’s a look at the band’s appearance on “Late Night with David Letterman." For details on the concert, click here.
