Tickets Now on Sale for the Coaster Theatre’s 3rd Annual Fundraiser Featuring Pink Martini with Storm Large
Cannon Beach, OR. May 31, 2015 | On September 12th, Pink Martini will return to the Coaster Theatre as the featured entertainment for the theatre’s 3rd annual fundraiser. The evening will also include wine and hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, and raffle. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m.
Featuring a dozen musicians, Pink Martini performs their multilingual repertoire on concert stages and with symphony orchestras throughout Europe, Asia, Greece, Turkey, the Middle East, Northern Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South America and North America. They made their European debut at the Cannes Film Festival in 1997 and their orchestral debut with the Oregon Symphony in 1998 under the direction of Norman Leyden. Since then, the band has gone on to play with more than 50 orchestras around the world, including multiple engagements with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, the Boston Pops, the National Symphony at the Kennedy Center, the San Francisco Symphony, the Cleveland Orchestra, and the BBC Concert Orchestra at Royal Albert Hall in London.
Other appearances include the grand opening of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall, with four return sold-out engagements for New Year’s Eve; four sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall; the opening party of the remodeled Museum of Modern Art in New York City; the Governor’s Ball at the 80th Annual Academy Awards in 2008; the opening of the 2008 Sydney Festival in Australia; multiple sold-out appearances, and a festival opening, at the Montreal Jazz Festival, two sold-out concerts at Paris’ legendary L’Olympia Theatre; and Paris’ fashion house Lanvin’s 10-year anniversary celebration for designer Alber Elbaz. In its twentieth year, Pink Martini was inducted into both the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame and the Oregon Music Hall of Fame.
The London Times has called them “One of the world’s most elegant live bands.” The Washington Post describes their performance as “Rich, hugely approachable music, utterly cosmopolitan yet utterly unpretentious. And it seems to speak to just about everybody …from grade-schoolers to grandmothers to the young and hip and beautiful.”
In particular, The Oregonian has characterized Storm Large’s voice as “a Swiss army knife”. “She spent her show slicing through the limits of the Great American Songbook. She touched on jazz, rock, show tunes and the orchestra’s classical presence, no genre out of reach of her flawless vibrato.”
