This wonderfully eclectic ensemble based in Portland, Oregon, has traveled the globe, selling out venues from Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl to the Olympia Theatre in Paris. They’ve performed with over 50 orchestras, including the North Carolina Symphony. And they’ve sold nearly 3 million albums worldwide.

Pink Martini’s repertoire is a multilingual affair, crossing borders and genres of classical, jazz, and old-fashioned pop. The Boston Globe’s Christopher Muther says, “The recipe for a Pink Martini would read something like this: One part French chanson, one part Argentine tango, one part soft merengue beat, and a dash of gin-joint jazz. Combine ingredients and shake vigorously over old Hollywood glamour.”

This performance features singer Storm Large. The Times (U.K.) calls her "an intoxicating and unmissable cocktail of power and vulnerability.”

"This is rich, hugely approachable music, utterly cosmopolitan yet utterly unpretentious. And it seems to speak to just about everybody … from grade-schoolers to grandmothers to the young and hip and beautiful."—Washington Post
