Pink Martini is back by popular demand to perform a Holiday Show on Sunday, December 8.

The internationally-acclaimed “little orchestra” will deck the hall with festive holiday songs from around the globe, from timeless classics to rarely heard gems.

The eleven-piece band was formed in 1994 by pianist Thomas Lauderdale in Portland, Oregon. They cross the genres of classical music, classic pop, Latin music, and jazz with co-lead vocalists China Forbes and Storm Large.

At what is sure to be the best holiday party you’ll attend this year, they will perform tracks from their holiday album, Joy to the World, with classics like “White Christmas” alongside Hebrew prayers, Chinese New Year tunes and a samba-inspired version of “Auld Lang Syne,” as well as crowd favorites from their non-holiday albums.

The Washington Post has described their music as “rich, hugely approachable... utterly cosmopolitan yet utterly unpretentious... It seems to speak to just about everybody.” 

Pink Martini’s infectiously joyous music will have you dancing in the aisles.

The holiday show beings at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 8th at the Arlington Theatre. Tickets range from $43.50 to $153.50 and can be purchased here.

The event is hosted by UCSB Arts & Lectures and presented through the generosity of Patricia Gregory for the Baker Foundation.
