In its 19th year, the Northfield Mount Hermon Instrumental Ensembles will again host a benefit concert for LifePath to kick off LifePath’s Walkathon season. The concert is scheduled for Sunday, February 19th at 3 p.m. on the beautiful Northfield Mount Hermon campus in the Rhodes Arts Center.
The Concert Band will present music from the heart of its literature: Winds of Celebration by Tyler Grant, a Sousa march, and Chester by William Billings. The strings of the Orchestra will play the first movement of Tchaikovsky’s famous String Serenade, and a new composition called Testimony by African American composer Charleton Singleton. The groups will collaborate to present a wonderful medley of music from The Lion King. The Jazz Ensembles will be performing Swing & Latin Jazz selections including Duke Ellington’s Take the A Train and Herbie Hancock’s Cantaloupe Island.
Donations may be given online here, or, at the venue, a collection jar will be available for cash or checks. We are so grateful to Steve Bathory-Peeler, Orchestra and Band Concert Director, Ron Smith, Director of Music Programs, and the instrumental staff and students, for continuing to make the needs of LifePath a priority with this benefit concert. Thank you to the NMH community and donors who support LifePath in so many ways.
