FARMINGTON — The Arts Institute of Western Maine will present “Music for Clarinet and Piano” with Karen Beacham and Martin Perry at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 6, in Nordica Auditorium in the University of Maine at Farmington’s Merrill Hall.

Beacham is currently band director and music department co-chair and district coordinator in the Mt. Blue Regional School District. Prior to that she was on the applied music faculty at Colby College. An active performer, she has played with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Portland Symphony Orchestra and Nordica Trio. In 2014 she was awarded Maine Music Educators Music Teacher of the Year.

Perry, a graduate of Juilliard, has distinguished himself as a consummate interpreter of contemporary classical piano music, with appearances across the U.S. and abroad, and recordings on RCA Red Seal and Bridge records. He has performed with many orchestras, including the Boston Pops and Moscow Philharmonic.

Together they will perform music for clarinet and piano in varied styles from the 20th century by composers from England, Germany, France and the U.S.
