PORTLAND, Maine — Liza Minnelli will visit Maine where she’ll be presented with a key to the city of Portland.

Minnelli had been scheduled to be honored Tuesday, but the event was delayed until Wednesday before her first performance at Merrill Auditorium, which kicks off the 80th season of Portland Ovations.

Mayor Nicholas Mavodones will welcome the singer, along with musicians led by pianist Billy Stritch who will perform Minnelli’s greatest hits and material from her new CD, “Confessions.”

Minnelli, the daughter of Judy Garland, won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Sally Bowles in the 1972 film “Cabaret.” She won an Emmy for the 1972 TV special “Liza with a Z,” and Tony Awards in 1974 and 1978.
