The sympathetic strings of the Indian sitar will ring at the Oasis of Music beginning at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31. David Pontbriand, a musician and artist from Portland, has developed an intuitive and emotive approach that is deeply personal, while classical in style. His original and spontaneous compositions for sitar are freely interpretive and yet rooted in the traditional ragas of North Indian classical music. Admission to the Oasis of Music, at Trinity Church, 247 Bates St. in Lewiston, is free, with donations accepted. FMI: call 207-344-3106.
