About This Performance
The “explosively charismatic” (New York Times) Avi Avital is a driving force behind the reinvigoration of the mandolin repertory. His inspired re-imaginings of music for other instruments are enhanced by his adventurous spirit and his warm rapport with audiences. Harpist Bridget Kibbey similarly imbues her instrument with “outsized personality and ethereal purity” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution), making this a pairing of rare creativity delivered with infectious energy and grace.
