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, at Nordica Auditorium.

Beacham is the 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.
