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 Northern Harmony, Boston Harmony, the Chicago World Music Chorus, and our many Village Harmony Summer Camp ensembles.

At this point we are on hold with plans for the upcoming summer due to the uncertainties resulting from the corona virus pandemic.

If you have signed up, or want to sign up, for a space in one of our US or overseas camps for summer 2020, rest assured that we plan to refund prepaid tuition and tuition deposits should we end up cancelling camp sessions.

Stay well and keep singing.

Village Harmony Updates

  • Northern Harmony March West Coast Tour

    A Northern Harmony mini-tour consisting of nine singers and led by Larry Gordon was scheduled to tour California and Oregon in early March, presenting workshops and concerts. The tour was cut short due to the rising corona virus threat following their Oakland concert on March 12th.

    Recordings from the tour will soon be made available on our Bandcamp page.

    ”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.”

    Dear Village Harmony camper/parent/supporter.

    In these uncertain times, it is not yet clear how the corona virus pandemic will impact Village Harmony’s ability to continue to fund needy students from the funds in our general budget.

    Every contribution to Village Harmony’s scholarship fund helps us to ensure that Village Harmony continues to contribute not just to the richness of our own lives but to those of the upcoming generation.

    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.
