Pink Martini at Millennium Park

June 23, 2010 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

The Grant Park Orchestra is joined by the ensemble Pink Martini, a self-described “rollicking around-the-world musical adventure…if the United Nations had a house band in 1962, hopefully we’d be that band.”

Grant Park Orchestra; Carlos Kalmar, conductor; Pink Martini
When: Wednesday, 06-23-2010, 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Where: Jay Pritzker Pavilion, Millennium Park

“Pink Martini draws inspiration from the romantic Hollywood musicals of the 1940s or ‘50s … with a more global perspective. We write a lot of songs … but we also champion songs like Ernesto Lecuona’s “Andalucia”or “Amado mio”from the Rita Hayworth film “Gilda”or “Kikuchiyo to mohshimasu (My name is Kikuchiyo)”made famous in the 1960s by the great Japanese group Hiroshi Wada & His Mahina Stars. In that sense we’re a bit like musical archeologists, digging through recordings and scores of years past and rediscovering beautiful songs.”
