Camden — The Noon Music in Lent series continues Friday, March 1, at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church, 33 Chestnut St., with soprano Kathryn DerMarderosian, accompanied by pianist/organist Jane Schroeder. DerMarderosian will sing sacred music by Bach, Gounod, Brahms, Bizet, Fauré, Franck and Powell.

DerMarderosian received her music degree from Rhode Island College, where she studied with Mary Beck; and her Orff-Schulwerk certification from the Hartt School of Music.  She has performed as a soloist with Opera Rhode Island, the Newgate Theater, the Brown Jazz Chorus and numerous chamber groups, both here and abroad. She has served as a music educator in the Eastern United States, Ecuador and Italy.

DerMarderosian currently sings with the Boston Symphony and the Boston Pops as a member of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus. She also serves on the faculty of the Bay Chamber Music School as a vocal instructor. She and her husband, Antranig, live and work between Owls Head and Boston.

The half-hour concert is part of the church’s Noon Music in Lent series and will be followed by a soup, bread and fruit lunch in the Sun Room. There is no admission charge, but a free-will offering will be given to Help Heat Homes.
