Sacred Concert

Alumni, parents, families, and friends are welcome to join us for the 125th Concert of Sacred Music.

Sunday, May 5, 2019
2:30 pm
Northfield Auditorium

The first Concert of Sacred Music took place in May 1895, when the students of Northfield and Mount Hermon presented a concert of gospel hymns for school founder D.L. Moody. Sacred Concert is held each spring in the Northfield Auditorium. School choirs are joined by the orchestra and the alumni who return year after year to rekindle the enthusiasm of their singing years at NMH.

There are no tickets or advance reservations required to attend Sacred Concert.

Are you interested in singing in Sacred Concert?

Any member of the NMH community is invited to perform. Even if you have not sung in a choir since you were a student, Sheila Heffernon's vocal warm-ups are carefully planned and coached in a way that will help you find your voice again.

Prefer to play an instrument?

The NMH Symphony Orchestra and Steve Bathory-Peeler welcome community members as well!

Register now!

My philosophy is: Fail early, so you can eventually succeed.

Gretel Schatz, Director of the Dance program, instructs a dance student.

I want dance students to engage their own memory and intellect.
