Springfest 2017: A Celebration of Music
Date: May 20, 2017
Time: 10:30 AM - 3:30 PM
The Northampton Community Music Center (NCMC) presents Springfest, an annual celebration of music in downtown Northampton, on Saturday, May 20th 2017, from 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM. This musical event showcases a wide range of individual students and ensembles from the Northampton Community Music Center, from elementary-school-aged Suzuki cello, violin, and guitar students to the Pioneer Valley New Horizons Band for senior citizens. Performances will begin on the half-hour at several sites along Main Street in downtown Northampton between 10:30 am and 3:30 pm. Each performance is free and open to the public. Donations are accepted and benefit NCMC’s scholarship fund.
Springfest would not be possible without the generosity of local business sponsors. Of the nearly fifty sponsors supporting this event, Springfest’s lead sponsors are Whole Foods Market, Florence Bank, Wright Builders, Valley Advocate, Downtown Sounds, 93.9 The River & WHMP, Northampton Area Pediatrics, GoBerry, Delap Real Estate, WEBS - America’s Yarn Store, Crooked Stick Pops, Lathrop Communities, and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
Founded in 1986, the Northampton Community Music Center is a not-for-profit arts organization whose mission is to foster the love and pursuit of music within our community through quality education, performances, and events that are accessible to all. NCMC’s programming is made possible, in part, by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency (www.massculturalcouncil.org). For more information about NCMC, visit: www.ncmc.net
