"[Pink Martini] delivers a knowing sophistication backed by skillful arrangements … Ms. Forbes is an unpretentious, pitch-perfect chanteuse who can be breathy and girlish or sultry … she tempers heartbreak with savoir-faire," writes The New York Times. An entertainment feast, Pink Martini aka “little orchestra”, will deliver a rollicking around-the-world musical adventure featuring a dozen musicians on Thursday, September 25, at 8 p.m. Special guests are The von Trapps, great-grandchildren of Captain and Maria, who will sing with China Forbes. No. 109 Cheese & Wine will serve wine tastings in the lobby at 7:15 p.m. for the reception with local artist Florence Notté, courtesy of Watershed Gallery. Tom Tom's (417 Main St., Ridgefield) will pour a complimentary glass of wine with dinner the night of the show when ticket is presented. This event is part of the Ridgefield Magazine Broadway & Cabaret and No.?109 Cheese & Wine “Art, Wine and Jazz” Series.
