Storm Large leads Pink Martini in a spring fling at Paramount

By Chris Hornbecker

PINK MARTINI

Friday, March 11 at 8 p.m. — RUTLAND — The Paramount Theatre in Rutland welcomes the biggest little orchestra around—Pink Martini featuring lead singer Storm Large on Friday, March 11 at 8 p.m.

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 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.

Twenty one 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 is a rollicking around-the-world musical adventure… if the united nations had a house band in 1962, hopefully we’d be that band,” stated Thomas lauderdale, bandleader/pianist.

Tickets, $49.75 to $79.75, are available in advance at the Box Office located at 30 Center Street in downtown Rutland, by phoning the venue Box Office at 802-775-0903, online at www.ParamountVT.org or at the door on the day of the show if still available.
