by Forbes. The band draws in­spi­ra­tion from mu­sic from all over the world – cross­ing gen­res of clas­si­cal, jazz and clas­sic pop. Fea­tur­ing a dozen or more reg­u­lar mu­si­cians, Pink Mar­tini per­forms its mul­ti­lin­gual reper­toire on con­cert stages and with sym­phony orches­tras through­out Europe, Asia, Greece, Turkey, the Mid­dle East, North­ern Africa, Aus­tralia and New Zealand, South Amer­ica and North Amer­ica.

The band made its Euro­pean de­but at the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val in 1997 and has played with more than 25 orches­tras around the world in­clud­ing mul­ti­ple en­gage­ments with the Los An­ge­les Phil­har­monic at the Hol­ly­wood Bowl, the Bos­ton Pops, the Na­tional Sym­phony at the Kennedy Cen­ter, the San Francisco Sym­phony and the BBC Con­cert Orches­tra in London’s Royal Al­bert Hall. Other ap­pear­ances in­clude three sold-out con­certs at Carnegie Hall and the Gov­er­nor’s Ball at the 80th An­nual Academy Awards in 2008. The band has col­lab­o­rated and per­formed with nu­mer­ous artists, rang­ing from Jimmy Scott, Carol Chan­ning, and Ru­fus Wain­wright to the orig­i­nal cast of Sesame Street.

Sofi (25 years old), Melanie (23), Amanda (22), and Au­gust von Trapp (19) have toured and per­formed over five con­ti­nents – and they per­formed on the re­cent Pink Mar­tini al­bum, “Get Happy.” The four sib­lings orig­i­nally be­gan by singing Aus­trian and Amer­i­can folk songs their grand­fa­ther, Werner von Trapp (por­trayed as Kurt “the in­cor­ri­gi­ble” in The Sound of Mu­sic), taught them at the fam­ily home in Kal­ispell, Mon­tana.
