Teen Residential Camp – August 4-13, 2017 – $775
Date: August 4-13, 2017
Venue: Ricki Carroll's House and Barn
Leaders: Larry Gordon, Will Thomas Rowan, Lynn Mahoney Rowan
This is our nine-day camp, especially geared for teenagers new to Village Harmony, as well as for those who don’t have time to commit three weeks to a traveling camp.
During the first seven days, singers get to know one another, singing 7-8 hours a day as they absorb the basics of new vocal styles and prepare a concert program. The session will culminate with performances on the final Saturday evening in Ashfield and Sunday afternoon in Westminster West, Vermont.
Village Harmony founder Larry Gordon will teach American shape-note songs, music from South Africa, and some early music with instruments. He will also lead folk dancing each day, including contras, English country dances and Balkan dancing. Will Thomas Rowan and Lynn Mahoney Rowan will teach some of their original compositiions and arrangements, anceint Lithuanian songs and seasonal songs and ballads. Together with Larry they will also lead some Corsican songs.
The camp is in residence at Ricki Carroll’s delightful, spacious house and grounds in the center of Ashfield village. There is a wonderful swimming lake a few blocks away and $1 ice cream cones just up the street.
