Festival welcomes Pink Martini for third time

| April 4, 2022 9:48 AM

The Festival at Sandpoint is welcoming back Pink Martini for the third time as part of its 2022 summer concert series.

The "biggest little orchestra around" – Pink Martini featuring lead singer China Forbes — will take to the Festival stage on Sunday, July 31.

Tickets for Pink Martini are on sale now.

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. The goal was 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.

Almost 30 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. Pink Martini has performed at the Festival at Sandpoint in 2012 and 2017.

Tickets for Pink Martini are available at festivalatsandpoint.com Tickets are general assignment and cost $44.95 before fees and taxes. Gates open at 6 p.m. with music starting at 7.
