Quietside Chamber Music Festival Concert Summer 2019
Quietside Music Festival
In the summer, Music Director Christina Spurling arranges for "Quietside Music Festival" Concerts, hosted in the church sanctuary and other nearby locations on Mount Desert Island. Sadly, the Coronavirus Pandemic forced the cancellation of the Summer 2020 series, but we look forward to again hosting for 2021.

The Somesville Union Meeting House congregation highly values music, and has been blessed with gifted and accomplished Music Directors. The late Jamie Hagedorn was the church's Music Director before Christina Spurling came in May 2017. Hagedorn had also directed the Acadia Choral Society. Church members and friends have not only sung for our Church Choir, but for the Acadia Choral Society and for Evensong (a hospice choral group for Hancock County).
Many of the members of the Acadia Handbell Choir also belong to our church. The Parish House is the location for rehearsals, and the handbells are stored in our facilities.
