Now in their 28th year of performing, Pink Martini was founded by bandleader/pianist Thomas M. Lauderdale in 1994 to provide beautiful and inclusive performances at fundraisers and galas for progressive causes, with a style inspired by Latin, big band, classical, and the Golden Age of Hollywood. Lauderdale’s friend from their time at Harvard, China Forbes, soon moved to Portland to become lead singer, and they released their landmark album Sympathique in 1997. Soon this “little orchestra” was touring the globe with a dozen or more musicians, singing their culturally inclusive music in over 20 languages, and performing at legendary venues such as Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall, the Sydney Opera House, and the Hollywood Bowl. The band has released nine studio albums and numerous side projects on its own label, Heinz Records, and is proud to call Oregon home.

All proceeds benefit the Hood River County Education Foundation. The foundation helps young people thrive in school and beyond. Profits from this concert will assist in supporting such programs as student college scholarships and activity scholarships for low-income middle school students to participate in sports, music, and drama.
