Additional Information

Pink Martini


Pink Martini with The von Trapps – Saturday, March 8 at 8:00 p.m. Drawing inspiration across the continents – spanning genres of classical, jazz and old- fashioned pop – Pink Martini is not easily defined. Featuring twelve musicians – two percussionists who spend a lot of time in Brazil; another percussionist who grew up in Peru; a German speaking trombone player who studied with the Chicago Symphony brass section; an African-American singer who studied French and Italian and sings in 14 different languages; a cellist who speaks Mandarin, and that’s still not everyone – Pink Martini’s multilingual repertoire leads audiences on a rollicking around-the-world musical adventure. They will be joined for a portion of the evening by The von Trapps. Sofia, Melanie, Amanda, and August von Trapp are the actual great-grandchildren of Captain & Maria von Trapp, made famous by the 1965 film The Sound of Music. These siblings (ages 19–25) have been singing together for 12 years, and have toured  all over the world in concert. Drawn into the magical orbit of Thomas Lauderdale, they now live together in a house in Portland, Oregon and have been frequent guest performers with Pink Martini for the past two years. This delightful new collaboration  features Pink Martini’s beloved “little orchestra” fronted by the beautiful crystalline four-part harmonies of the singing siblings,  traveling through a wonderland of Lauderdale’s brilliant arrangements.
