Somewhere between a 1930s Cuban dance orchestra, a classical chamber- music ensemble, a samba parade in Rio, and Japanese film noir is Pink Martini. Part language lesson, part Hollywood musical, the Portland, Oregon-based “little orchestra” returns to the Kravis Center for a magical evening of musical enchantment. “Classy, charming, sexy, elegant, sophisticated – take your pick to describe the globe-trotting eclectic mix that is Pink Martini.” – The Sun
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.
