Arts News2016-10-31By: Classical Staff


5 Years Ago Music Teachers Dianne Pendock and Helen Torney with financial help from Northumberland Rotary and passionate volunteers began the Non Profit Northumberland Hills Music Festival. Every April, close to 100 children perform and compete in Strings, Piano and Voice. The gift for the students is joy of playing, self confidence and sharing their musical talent.


PORT HOPE -- Alyssa Smith, 11, has enlisted piano teacher Betty Taylor to help her prepare for the Northumberland Music Festival. October 29, 2015.


PORT HOPE -- Intermediate piano winner Steven Penagus, 15, performed in the Northumberland Hills Music Festival Stars of the Festival concert at Port Hope United Church on April 16, 2016.

PORT HOPE -- Mackenzie Smith, 16, won the Rose Bowl for her vocal performance in the Northumberland Hills Music Festival. Mackenzie accepted the top award at the Stars of the Festival concert at Port Hope United Church on April 16, 2016.

Sadly Dianne and the Volunteers don’t have enough funds to continue the Festival in 2017. This Sunday November 6th 3pm   5 Teachers will be performing in a very special Concert at Port Hope United Church. They will be playing everything from Mozart to Gershwin. The money raised will give them the opportunity to have a 2017 Music Festival. Tickets will be available at the door. Adults $20.00 18 and under $15.00. Fill the Church and you will be able to save The Northumberland Hills Music Festival.
