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.

Online registration is now open for for all of our summer 2017 camps and for the Village Harmony Winter Weekend of singing in Vermont February 24-26.

We urge you to apply as soon as you know what session/s you want to attend. We will be accepting people to camp programs primarily on a first-come, first-served basis,  while also making sure that we maintain a good balance of voice parts. At any rate, exactly when we receive your application will be important.

Our first round of acceptance emails will go out on January 10, 2017. At that time we will ask you for a 25% tuition deposit to confirm your place.

In addition to four teen performance camps in New England and one in the Midwest, adult residential weeks in western Massachusetts and in Oregon, we are offering a pioneering 2-week long program in Lithuania, as well as camps in South Africa and the Republic of Georgia.

Register online.

We now have a Village Harmony Facebook page which will have regular postings about interesting happenings in the Village Harmony community.  We invite you to contribute postings about any singing projects, choirs, concerts or workshops that you may be involved with.  Email them to us at villageharmony(at)  We will also be posting a Song of the Month to download – a selected song with recording and transcription, from the wide repertoire of Village Harmony/Northern harmony over the years.

  • Village Harmony Diversity Scholarship Campaign

    For over 27 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 have 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. In 2016 we were able to offer full scholarships to six young singers and partial scholarships to many more through your generosity! Please continue to contribute generously so that we can offer the Village Harmony experience to even more students in 2017.
