The Long Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit dedicated to broadening the appreciation and enhancing the enjoyment of the cultural arts.
The Long Center presents Pink Martini, March 12th in Dell Hall.
“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
“An international phenomenon mixing glamour and sophisticated easy listening with multilingual songs and the unexpected.” – The Guardian
Think Breakfast at Tiffany’s meets the United Nations and you have Pink Martini, whose music features a mid-tempo style, smooth vocals, romantic lyrics, a sparse trumpet solo and acoustic piano accompaniment.
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, the band’s twentieth year, Pink Martini was inducted into both the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame and the Oregon Music Hall of Fame.
