Pink Martini Plays Carnegie Hall

We’re headed down to NYC to see our favorite band Pink Martini perform at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops. The sold out holiday concert features songs from the band’s best-selling album, Joy to the World. The New York Pops openly gay Music Director & Conductor Steven Reineke will be joined by Thomas Lauderdale on piano, vocals by China Forbes, Gavin Bondy, trumpet, guitarist Dan Faehnle, bassist Phil Baker, Nicholas Crosa on violin, cellist Pansy Chang, Maureen Love on harp, Timothy Nishimoto, vocals & percussion, Brian Lavern Davis on congas, drums & percussion with Derek Rieth on congas, bongos & percussion & Anthony Jones on drums & percussion. Of course there will be special guest artists including Myrlie Evers-Williams the widow of Medgar Evers who was assassinated in 1963 in Jackson, Mississippi. At the age of 79, 60 years after she put the dream aside to work for civil rights in America, she's going to make her Carnegie Hall debut. She actually studied to be a classical pianist. We’ll be staying with the band & of course attending the after-party. This concert is especially important to me since my partner Marilyn Rosen booked it. We’ll have all the details & dish next week. Updates to Come…:)
