Pink Martini, the wildly popular world-music-meets- cocktail-lounge-meets-classical "little orchestra" from Portland, is heading back to Spokane.
The Spokane Symphony is bringing the group in to play the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox on June 27, 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale to symphony subscribers on Nov. 10 and to the general public on Nov. 13.
This group, the brainchild of leader Thomas Lauderdale, has a repertoire that ranges from French art songs, to Argentine tangos to jazzy renditions of Ravel's "Bolero." They have proven to be a sold-out draw in their three previous Spokane appearances, the last one in 2004.
Tickets are $37, $62 and $85 (the latter including a meet-and-greet reception), available by calling the symphony box office at (509) 624-1200.
