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.

New singers can join Boston Harmony—our school-year regional community chorus—until our January rehearsal. Read about the ensemble, which draws singers from all over New England for once-a-month weekend rehearsals in Concord, MA.

Registration is now open for our 2019 summer music camps. Village Harmony Camps are non-auditioned, inclusive programs for people who love singing together. Since 1990 the teen & adult singers of Village Harmony camps have been traveling and performing throughout New England and an ever-widening swath of the globe, participating in cultural exchanges and delighting audiences with their heart-felt renditions of traditional harmony singing from around the world.

Camp staff, dates and descriptions are listed under different categories—teen & alumni camps, adult residential camps, and international camps for mixed groups of adult & teen singers—on our website header.

Our non-US camps for 2019 are in Quebec, Bulgaria and the Republic of Georgia.

A not-to-be-missed event for any Village Harmony camp or workshop alum! Come reunite with old friends and teachers, and sing and dance a long weekend away as we celebrate 30 YEARS of Village Harmony over Labor Day weekend 2019.

The event will be held at Windridge Camp in Roxbury, Vermont, which is 15 miles south of Montpelier—the location of our blow-out 25th anniversary party that was such an incredible success. EARLY BIRD PRICING IS IN EFFECT UNTIL JANUARY 1, 2019.

Accommodations are mostly in rustic dormitory cabins with a small number of private ensuite double cabins and double rooms also on-location (available on a first come, first served basis). Or register as a commuter and book local B&B accommodations.

If you have the time and want a longer reunion than just the weekend, check out our special 7-day REUNION WEEK CAMP,  Monday, August 26 and continues through the end of the Anniversary Weekend.
