Pink Martini appears on Mountain Stage, recorded live on the campus of Ohio University in Athens. Formed in Portland, Ore., by pianist Thomas Lauderdale, Pink Martini is a self-described "little orchestra" with many international influences. Any given set the band plays features a wide range of musical styles from all over the world and songs in many languages. The group occasionally features guest vocalists, but is most widely known for showcasing the larger-than-life voice of Lauderdale's former Harvard classmate, China Forbes.

An unabashed fan of The Sound of Music, Lauderdale jumped at the chance to work with the great-grandchildren of Captain Georg and Maria von Trapp: Sofi, Melanie, Amanda and August von Trapp. The result of that collaboration is Pink Martini's latest album, Dream a Little Dream.
