About the Candlelight Concert Series
The Candlelight Concert Series has been presented annually at the Old Ship Church for over thirty years. The concerts were inspired by an Old Ship family who, after a vacation trip to London, wished to encourage the organization of free concerts in Hingham similar to the tradition they experienced in the churches of Europe. The first concert was presented in December 1973 with a performance by the Cambridge Quartet. The goal of these concerts is to present a wide variety of professional artists performing a breadth of instrumental and vocal repertory within this unique venue, which enhances the enjoyment of great musical art. The list of artists who have performed here includes many of the finest instrumental and vocal musicians from the New England and American music scene. Performances take place in the Old Ship Meeting House at 90 Main Street in downtown Hingham. Designated in 1960 as a National Historic Landmark, and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1966, this original Colonial building – the central portion was completed in 1681 – has been in continuous church use for more than 300 years. Observances last year celebrated the 325th anniversary of the meeting house. 

Friends of the series are invited to add their names to our list of supporters to be counted among those who endorse the continuation of quality, live musical performances in our community.

Art Auction and Global Market to Benefit The Kerry Jon Walker Fund @ Hingham Community Center
Mar 7 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The Kerry Jon Walker Fund (KJWF), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping humanity and supporting those affected by poverty, presents a benefit evening Art Auction and Global Market, on Saturday, March 7, from 4 to 8 pm, at Hingham Community Center, 70 South Street, Hingham. All proceed support the fund’s mission, including mission service trips for teens supporting sustainable programs to improve health, education and economic opportunity for those in need.

An evening of delights awaits where art and handmade crafts from local and international fine artists are on display in a festive market atmosphere. KJWF’s Art Auction and Global Market features live entertainment by singer/songwriter Les Sampou, catered light bites, shopping opportunities for hand-crafted wares and more from abroad, a silent and live auction, and a cash bar. Purchases make wonderful gifts, support a great cause and may be taken home the same night.

KJWF provides financially challenged urban teen students the opportunity to create global objectivity and travel abroad in charitable service. KJWF provides student service trips to Rwanda, where they have assisted 500 orphaned teens at the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village. While providing service to this community abroad, the Boston teens, most never having never traveled out of the country, gain a new understanding of the developing world.

Founded in 2010, enhancing the education of youth is at the heart of The Kerry Jon Walker Fund’s mission. Amongst its accomplishments, KJWF provided 3000 lbs. of books, maps and educational materials, as well as school uniforms, to village schools in Guinea, West Africa. The community ranks amongst the poorest in the world, home to the region’s most deprived children.

Admission to the Art Auction and Global Market is $50, available at the door and at thekerryfund.org. Admission fee and purchases may be paid for by cash, check and credit card on site. To learn more or support the Kerry Jon Walker Fund, visit thekerryfund.org.
