NMH Vespers has combined choral and orchestral music, carols, and readings since the 1930s.

On campus, Vespers is held in a candlelit Memorial Chapel. This event is a lovely showcase of students' musical skills as well as a moving celebration of the winter holiday season. Vespers is held off campus as well, alternating between Boston and New York City each year.

This time-honored tradition brought together 60 student singers and musicians to share beautiful music and joyous celebrations.
