Maine Friends of Music specializes in quick-paced programs that create interesting listening experiences, with a variety of tone, colors, and styles. Much of the ensemble’s repertoire features a mixture of classic eighteenth-century Baroque selections, including works by Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven, as well as twentieth century composers such as Debussy, Hindemith, Vaughan-Williams and Koechlin. New music written for the Maine Friends of Music concerts by crossover classic/jazz composer Bill Douglas, as well as material composed by Bernard Garfield, Sean Fleming, and David DeBolt expands the ensemble’s repertoire further. “Imagination and adaptation are twin themes that inspire the annual concerts by the Maine Friends of Music, one of the state’s most unusual performing ensembles. I’ve attended for the past two years, and I’ve been thoroughly delighted by the repertoire that’s presented with enthusiasm and flair.” (Scott Andrews, Times Record, Brunswick, ME).
