Pink Martini Shakes Things Up At The San Francisco Symphony
Celebrate this Christmas season with San Francisco Symphony's joyful toast to all things festive, featuring good-time musical collective Pink Martini at the Davies Symphony Hall for two very special nights only! Together they're set to keep things shaken not stirred with eclectic, electric and high-flying big band arrangements of beloved Yuletide carols and classics.
With a sense of fun and unabashed delight, Pink Martini mixes jazzy swing with a fizzing world music flair, inspired by French chanson, Afro-Cuban salsa, samba, bossa nova and middle eastern traditional music amongst other folk genres. Wrapping her dulcet tones around multilingual lyrics and sophisticated lounge music arrangements, front woman China Forbes' effortless glamour and lilting vocal style, as well as the band's revolving line-up of stellar musicians, transports audiences to the golden era of swing with a thoroughly modern, globe-trekking twist.
