The Washington Center for the Performing Arts is thrilled to announce that the biggest little orchestra around – Pink Martini featuring China Forbes – is returning to Olympia on January 21, 2024 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the show go on sale to the general public on Friday, August 31. Pre-Sale for Subscribers and Friends of the Washington Center begins August 29 at 12 p.m.
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.
Executive Director, Jill Barnes shares “Thomas Lauderdale is a genius and it’s always a musical adventure to be in his presence. Pink Martini regularly sells out at the Washington Center so I encourage patrons to purchase tickets early.”
Tickets start at $64. To purchase tickets, visit the Washington Center for the Performing Arts website.
