Back by popular demand, Maine Friends of Music will perform at Montpelier, the General Henry Knox Museum, Wednesday, June 22 at 7 p.m. Maine Friends of Music includes flutist Linda Brunner, violist Katharine Gerson DeBolt, bassoonist David DeBolt and harpsichordist/organist Sean Fleming.

This marks the sixth time the group’s Baroque and Beyond repertoire has been heard amidst the Federal Period surroundings of Montpelier’s Oval Room. The program will feature the Maine premiere of a newly commissioned Spanish-flavored work by crossover classic/jazz composer Bill Douglas, composed specifically for the quartet.

Maine Friends of Music began performing in Midcoast Maine in 1994 and have just returned from a four-concert tour in France. The group’s fast-paced programs feature a mixture of classic eighteenth-century Baroque selections, including works by Bach, Mozart and Beethoven, as well as 20th century composers such as Debussy, Hindemith, Vaughan-Williams and Koechlin.

Admission will be $15, $12 for museum members, and $8 for students. Reservations are required as seating is limited and can be made by contacting the General Henry Knox Museum at 354-8062 or info@knoxmuseum.org. Montpelier is the big white mansion on Route 131 at the beginning of the St. George peninsula.
