And We'll All Sing Hallelujah: Tuesday Night Sacred Harp Singing in Northampton
The weekly Tuesday night singing at Helen Hills Hills Chapel on the Smith College campus in Northampton was founded by Allison Schofield and Jess Cook during their time at Smith College. After hearing the band Cordelia's Dad perform Sacred Harp music at one of its concerts, Schofield began attending a Sacred Harp singing in Amherst every month. Wanting to sing more often, Schofield and Cook decided to start a weekly singing. Thus, Northampton's Tuesday night singing was born.
