Three local high school seniors will present a recital at the Clifford Performing Arts Center of Mt. View High School, Route 220, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 11. Participating in the recital are flutist Mary Kate Bickford from Belfast Area High School; clarinetist Ashley Boden, from Mt. View High School; and soprano Katie Cloutier, also from Mt. View. Their program will include works by Schubert, Fauré, Mozart, Haydn, Weber, Bolling, Bliss and Bach.

These students also will be performing in the Maine Music Educators Association All-State Festival in late May, and all plan to attend four-year colleges in the fall, two as music majors and one as a political science major. Boden currently studies with Karen Beacham of Farmington; Bickford and Cloutier study with Diana Brookes Brown of Stockton Springs. In this recital, they will be assisted by pianists Deanna Sawtelle of Albion and Theo VanDeventer of Unity; and cellist William Myers of Ellsworth.

The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call 567-3089.
