Village Harmony


Village Harmony is the umbrella organization for a diverse range of choral, world music and harmony singing activities under the direction of Larry Gordon and Patty Cuyler. Our ensembles include Village Harmony, Northern Harmony, Boston Harmony, the Brooklyn World Music Chorus, the Chicago World Music Chorus, and our many Village Harmony Summer Camp ensembles.

Welcome to our new website (designed by VH alumnus Guillaume Sparrow-Pepin).  All the links that you need are in drop-down menus visible at the top of every page.

Online registration is now open for our 2016 summer camps and other workshops. We will send out our first round of acceptance emails to successful candidates in mid-January, following which time applicants will be accepted to camp sessions that still have openings on a rolling basis until all of our spaces are filled.

Once you have chosen a camp session, don’t wait to apply. Spaces in popular programs fill up fast, sometimes within weeks of the opening of registration. Apply early, and be sure to indicate a second choice camp session.

This coming year we are offering four teen performance camps in New England and one in the Midwest, adult residential weeks in western Massachusetts and in Oregon, and international study-performance programs in Corsica, Bulgaria, Bosnia and the UK.

Village Harmony Updates

    VHAC-15 on stepsLed by Larry Gordon, Gideon Crevoshay
    Registration is now open for our first ever winter traveling camp.  This camp is primarily for young adult Village Harmony alumni, but is open to other experienced singers age 17 and older.  The format will be similar to the Village Harmony Alumni camps held the last four years in June.
    Accommodations and meals will be at Larry’s spacious house in Marshfield, Vermont. The week-long tour will include seven concerts in Vermont and Massachusetts, ending in Boston on Friday, January 8.

  • Our Diversity Scholarship Campaign

    For 25 years Village Harmony has been a place where teenagers who don’t follow the beaten path have been able to come together and experience the sheer power of making music as a community with their peers. But there are still plenty of singers who aren’t represented in our camps in large numbers, including underprivileged students who could greatly benefit from the support of the VH environment.

    We are excited to launch a permanent Diversity Scholarship Fundraising Campaign aimed at expanding the economic, social and racial diversity of our camps by providing generous new scholarship funding for students who might normally not even consider coming to our summer camps because of the price tag attached.  Read more here.
