Pink Martini Featuring China Forbes at the LPCA
Lake Placid, NY: The Lake Placid Center for the Arts (LPCA) is proud to present the biggest little orchestra around – Pink Martini featuring lead singer China Forbes (with special guest Meow Meow) on Friday, September 27 at 8:00pm. Tickets start at $40 and are available by calling the LPCA Box Office at 518.523.2512 or online at www.lakeplacidarts.org.
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.
Twenty years later, Pink Martini still 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.
"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
