Village Harmony


Happy New Year!

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 has been open since early November for our summer 2017 camps as well as for the Village Harmony Winter Weekend of singing in Vermont February 24-26.

This year we are offering four teen performance camps in New England, a teen traveling camp in the Midwest, adult residential weeks in western Massachusetts and in Oregon, a pioneering 2-week long program in Lithuania, and study-performance camps in South Africa and the Republic of Georgia.

Our first round of summer camp acceptance emails have already gone out, and some of our programs are beginning to fill up. We urge you to apply as soon as you know what session/s you want to attend. We will be accepting people on a first-come, first-served basis for each camp as long as spaces remain.

Don’t wait. Register online now.

“Your work continues to shine a bright light in the world.”

  • Song on the Times

    Windborne, a group of VH alums, have started an incredible project of political songs, and are shooting to make history with one of the largest crowdfunding music campaigns ever. With already over 1,800 supporters from 50 states and 20+ countries, this is a chance to send a powerful message about the power of people coming together to sing! Check out this video of them singing outside Trump tower!
    The project supports social action, including distributing sheet music for protest songs to schools across the country. Also, $5 from every book sold through this link will go to support the Village Harmony Scholarship fund!–2/reft/12452901/VHFund
    SONG ON THE TIMES is an illustrated songbook and album that brings together music from working class movements for peoples’ rights in the US and UK over 400 years, and sings them for today’s struggles. Enjoy Windborne’s richly harmonized arrangements, a book of beautifully illustrated lyrics and music, alongside historical context from activists, singers, and scholars, including Larry Gordon, Eliza Carthy, David Oliver, Tony Barrand, and others!

    ”We can never thank you enough for introducing our daughter and her now-best friends and fellow singers to world music and to one another. You’ve walked them through a window into a world they wouldn’t have otherwise known – not just musically, geographically, and culturally, but also in terms of a set of personal values and perspectives that have so enriched – and will continue to enrich – their lives.”

    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.
