Maine Public is the media sponsor of Portland Ovations' Classical Series including Mandolinist Avi Avital in performance with Harpist Bridget Kibbey on Tuesday evening, February 18 at USM's Hannaford Hall in Portland. Called "explosively charismatic" by The New York Times, Avi Avital is considered the driving force behind the reinvigoration of the mandolin repertory. More than 90 contemporary compositions, 15 of them concertos, have been written for this champion of the mandolin, all enhanced by Avi's infectious spirit of adventure and the warm rapport he fosters with his audience. He is joined by in-demand harpist Bridget Kibbey in a stunning classical program injected with traditional folk tunes.
