January 23 - Pink Martini with China Forbes
Mahaffey Theater, 400 First Street South, St. Petersburg, FL
For more than twenty years, Pink Martini has toured the world, providing an around-the-world musical adventure singing in 22 languages at opera houses, concert halls, film festivals, museums and fashion shows. Fans know the musical group that formed in 1994 was known as a "little orchestra,” mixing many genres including classical, Latin, jazz and classic pop. St. Pete is proud to present Pink Martini featuring lead singer China Forbes. They’ve come a long way since 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 and the environment. In 2014, Pink Martini was inducted into both the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame and the Oregon Music Hall of Fame.
