Soprano Catharine Cloutier will join the Somerset Consort in an evening of Baroque music Friday, June 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the First Congregational Church, Church Street in the Penobscot Marine Museum campus.

The program will include music of Bach, Handel, Vivaldi and others. There is no admission charge, but donations are welcome and will benefit the church’s Bicentennial Capital Campaign, which includes support of the 1906 E.W. Lane pipe organ. Suggested donation is $10, $5 for students.

Liberty resident and former Mt. View Chamber Singer Cloutier is a music education major with a vocal concentration at the University of Maine in Orono. Somerset Consort members are Diana Brookes Brown, flute; Lorna S. Russell, viola da gamba; and Carlton T. Russell, harpsichord. Brown has concertized throughout New England and teaches flute and voice privately at Waterfall Arts in Belfast.  Lorna Russell, also an organist, shares with her husband Carlton the music ministry at St. Francis Episcopal Church in Blue Hill. Carlton Russell is dean of the Bangor Chapter of the American Guild of Organists and instructor in the Organ Education Program centered at First Congregational Church.

The handicap-accessible church is located just off Route 1, behind the main building of the marine museum, between Knox Brothers Avenue and Church Street. Parking is available either on Church Street or in a parking lot behind the church, on Knox Brothers Avenue.
