Visit Village Harmony on the web!

Village Harmony is a traveling, singing summer camp for teenagers. The group of 20 young singers rehearses intensely for a week, learning traditional music styles from around the world from three master teachers, as well as cooking and cleaning for each other. They then get in a fleet of vans and take their concert program on tour for two-weeks. The concerts are high-energy affairs, with raucous gospel and shape-note tunes performed alongside heart-wrenching ballads.

Directing this session of camp is Chicago native Mollie Stone, who will lead music from her amazing repertoire of South African dance-songs, Georgian traditional music, American gospel and renaissance motets. Much-loved Village Harmony alumna Emily Miller (lead singer in the Sweetback Sisters honky-tonk band) brings her marvelous humor, musicianship and vast repertoire of American folk music and amazing traditional fiddle-playing to the concert program. Joining them is Gideon Crevoshay, an exceptional tenor singer, who will be leading traditional and contemporary shape-note songs, early music pieces from Italy and Spain, and an exciting set of songs from Caucasus Georgia.
