The Pink Martini phenomenon rolls on: a 2nd concert added to the program

Montreal, Thursday, February 21, 2013 — Make ours a double! The runaway popularity of Pink Martini shows no sign of abating: by popular demand—and before the extraordinary group has even released its new album—the organizers of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, presented by TD in collaboration with Rio Tinto Alcan, have added another performance to the program, June 28, 7:30 p.m., in Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Place des Arts (Événements spéciaux TD series). Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 22 at noon.

Summer means it’s time to shake up another serving of Pink Martini, the preeminent suave multicultural, multilingual orchestra renowned for their dexterously blended musical cocktail of swing, jazz, classical, pop and lounge. Under the leadership of the charming Thomas Lauderdale, the group has racked up years of sold-out shows around the world, including numerous gigs at the Festival since 2005. Their most recent stop in Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, two years ago, already seems like a distant memory… so let’s pour ourselves another musical Happy Hour! It’s the perfect opportunity to discover their new album, and renew acquaintances with the elegant China Forbes!

Tickets go on sale Friday at noon

Tickets for this concert will be available from the Place des Arts box office (175 Ste. Catherine St. W.), laplacedesarts.comor 514 842-2112
