Drawing inspiration from music all over the world - crossing genres of classical, jazz and old-fashioned pop - Thomas Lauderdale founded the "little orchestra" Pink Martini in 1994 to provide more beautiful and inclusive musical soundtracks for political fundraisers for causes such as civil rights, affordable housing, the environment, libraries, public broadcasting, education and parks.
"Pink Martini is a rollicking around-the-world musical adventure, if the United Nations had a house band in 1962, hopefully we'd be that band."
-Thomas Lauderdale, bandleader/pianist
