The mandolin is not commonly featured at classical music concerts, and the accordion even less so. Both instruments will be highlighted, however, when the Friends of Chamber Music presents the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra in concert Nov. 7 at Helzberg Hall. Mandolinist Avi Avital and accordionist Ksenija Sidorova will perform a concerto for mandolin and accordion, which the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra commissioned from composer Benjamin Wallfisch.
