Northfield Mount Hermon (NMH) will hold a benefit concert for Meals on Wheels at the beautiful and fully accessible Rhodes Art Center on the school campus under the direction of Steve Bathory-Peeler, director of orchestras, and his colleague Ron Smith, director, band and jazz programs.For the 15th year in a row, on Sunday, February 24, 2019, at 3 p.m.,
We’re excited to share that the NMH musicians have a varied and spirited selection of music to perform this year. Concert attendees will enjoy a medley of college fight songs played by the NMH Band; a movement from Georges Bizet's First Symphony; an Irish reel called Toss the Feathers; a Frank Sinatra medley, and music by Count Basie.
Come swing, tap, bop, and sway with us as you enjoy musical talents you just have to hear to believe. The concert is free, and 100% of donations given will support Meals on Wheels, a vital program for hundreds of area elders who depend on the daily hot meal delivery and wellness check.
The concert is a part of the spring drive to support Meals on Wheels that culminates at the Meals on Wheels Walkathon on Saturday, April 27, 2019.
For information about the concert on Sunday, February 24, at 3 p.m., at Northfield Mount Hermon, contact Sue Rhenow at 413-498-3281.
