Augusta Heritage Center presents Village Harmony

July 25, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$10

Village Harmony was founded by Larry Gordon in 1988. It began as a small ensemble of high school singers drawn from several central Vermont schools, rehearsing extracurricularly and preparing a concert program for a ten day spring tour. In 1990 the first Village Harmony summer camp was held, establishing a pattern which has continued since: a week-long residential rehearsal week followed by a performing tour with homestays hosted by community sponsors. The organization and its programs have grown steadily and organically. In 1994 the first teen summer camp went overseas, to Russia, and the following year the first of many England camp sessions was held.

That same year Patty Cuyler joined Village Harmony and Northern Harmony as co-director. She was to soon become a major force in extending Village Harmony’s repertoire and travels, to other countries in eastern Europe, into the Mediterranean, and onto the African continent. Since those initial trips we have taken study-performance groups to Italy, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Corsica, Bulgaria, Bosnia, Macedonia, Caucasus Georgia, Ukraine, Ghana and South Africa, changing our destinations each year, and making repeat visits to favorite countries.

Over the years Village Harmony has developed a strong international presence, through its many study/performance programs, through its many professional recordings, and through regular tours throughout North America, the UK and western Europe by its semi-professional touring ensemble, Northern Harmony.
