About The Event

Led by Larry Gordon and based in central Vermont, Northern Harmony is the highest level performing group under the Village Harmony umbrella. Since 1993 they have toured and performed widely throughout America and Europe to great critical acclaim.

Not a permanent year-round group, the ensemble is constituted specifically for each extended performing tour (typically 7-10 weeks) or shorter term project. The singers include some of the most talented veterans of other Village Harmony performing ensembles. Many of the younger members have sung with Village Harmony since their young teens, and most have studied traditional singing styles first hand with native teachers in South Africa, Bulgaria, Corsica and Caucasus Georgia.

Transcending the traditional definition of choral music, the group is particularly renowned for its command of varied world ethnic singing styles, from the hearty and ultra bright Bulgarian “hard voice” to the equally powerful, but darker and more sonorous Georgian timbre, from the rich, mellifluous South African style or the wild and unrestrained American shape-note sound to a delicate, pure, early music timbre.

Northern Harmony’s Spring 2019 Tour will start with a rehearsals in Vermont in early February followed by two months touring in the UK, France, and Spain.

Members of the 2017 tour are Larry Gordon, Jeremy Carter Gordon, Silas Hamilton, Willy Clemetson, Luke Linich, Evyater Gershon, Mia Bertelli, Stella Green Sanderson, Anna Peel, Julia Placier, Emma Rothman, Elsa Schaffer, Heidi Wilson, Sarina Yospin Partridge
