TBA: Meow Meow and Thomas Lauderdale with the Oregon Symphony
The artistic love affair between Pink Martini bandleader Thomas Lauderdale and globe-scorching cabaret diva Meow Meow has traveled from PICA's Time-Based Art festival in 2005 to the Sydney Opera House. Now they're teaming up for their biggest collaboration yet: they'll be joined by the Oregon Symphony and a slew of special guests at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on Saturday, September 14.
We caught up with Meow while she was filming a video for Pink Martini's new album, Get Happy. Here's what she told us to expect at Saturday's show. Also, don't be surprised if she's the first person you ever see crowd surfing in the Schnitz. We hear she did it during her recent performance with the London Philharmonic.
