The New Classical FM is the official radio sponsor of PINK MARTINI FEATURING CHINA FORBES.
The biggest little orchestra around – Pink Martini featuring lead singer China Forbes, returns to Roy Thomson Hall!
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. One year later, Lauderdale called China Forbes, a Harvard classmate who was living in New York City, and asked her to join Pink Martini. They began to write songs together. Their first song “Sympathique (Je ne veux pas travailler)” became an overnight sensation in France, and an enduring beloved classic for Pink Martini fans around the world.
Nearly 30 years later, Pink Martini performs its multilingual repertoire on concert stages worldwide, featuring a dozen musicians with songs in 25 languages. Pink Martini has released 11 studio albums on its own independent label Heinz Records (named after Lauderdale’s dog), selling over 3 million albums worldwide.
