The sonic ensemble of Pink Martini dazzles listeners with a multilingual repertoire that spans classical, jazz, old-fashioned, and pop genres. Channeling the nostalgic notes of romantic Hollywood musicals, the 12-member little orchestra has assembled its globetrotting catalog on five studio albums, including 2009’s Joy to the World, which featured nondenominational holiday pieces sung in languages such as German, Arabic, and Pig Latin. Vocalist Storm Large’s impassioned serenades supplement the tightly spun measures, which have been performed with symphony orchestras from Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Northern Africa. In addition to original pieces, Pink Martini also taps the past to champion classic songs, aiming to infuse modern culture with the singing, dancing, and suspender snapping of the early 20th century.
