The annual summer concert series will kick off at the Rockville Community Chapel with an instrumental concert featuring brother and sister Phil Clement (guitar) and Sybil (Clement) Wentworth (piano) Sunday, July 10 at 3 p.m. They appeared at the chapel for the first time last summer and were greatly received.

Clement and Wentworth participated in many local music events in their school and community as they grew up in Camden. Clement is a professional musician and songwriter, well-known for his versatility in playing everything from folk to jazz, blues to gospel and country to rock. He teaches guitar privately, as well as guiding the group guitar lesson program at the Pen Bay YMCA.

Wentworth loves sharing the joy of music through teaching music at the Warren Community School. She also has been very involved in community theater productions, as well as serving as a church musician (organist and choir director) since she was in elementary school.

The siblings perform monthly at the Methodist Church in Union and were encouraged by church members and family to record “Mom and Dad’s Favorite Hymns,” Vol. I and II. Concertgoers can come prepared with a favorite song or hymn as they will do requests.

Sunday, July 24 at 3 p.m., the Windjammer Barbershop Chorus, a local favorite, will be in concert; and on Sunday, Aug. 14 at 2 p.m. the Bay Winds North will perform. As usual, there will be lemonade and home-baked goodies for sale on the lawn during intermission.

All proceeds will go toward the continuing renovation of the chapel and to help pay the outstanding loan, which was necessary for the new roof and repairs to the steeple and belfry. The Rockville Community Chapel is located on Old Rockland Street, off Route 17 behind The Green Thumb. For more information, visit
