The Kahilu Theatre is proud to present two nights of the biggest little orchestra around, Pink Martini, featuring lead singer China Forbes, Wednesday, October 31, and Thursday, November 1, at 7 pm.
Drawing inspiration from music from all over the world, and 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.
Pink Martini is a rollicking around-the-world musical adventure…if the United Nations had a house band in 1962, hopefully we’d be that band.
– Thomas Lauderdale, Bandleader/pianist
Twenty years later, Pink Martini tours the world, singing in 22 languages at opera houses, concert halls, film festivals, museums and fashion shows. In 2014, Pink Martini was inducted into both the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame and the Oregon Music Hall of Fame.
