Sunday's concert focuses on the touching story of Rachela Zelmanowicz-Olewski, a Jewish mandolin player from Poland who, as a young woman, played in the Auschwitz women’s orchestra under the famous violinist and conductor Alma Rose. Rachel’s story is of a heroic survival in Auschwitz through the power of her mandolin music. There will be a post-concert reception.

Duo Mantar is comprised of two virtuosi: American classical guitarist, Adam Levin, and Israeli mandolinist, Jacob Reuven. Both concerts are being presented free of charge in the Jonsson Performance Hall. Follow the white Ackerman Center Event signs from Waterview to Parking Structure 3 (map available here). There will be a parking greeter in a yellow vest to help you.
