Inspired by world music
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.
