Village Harmony Teen World Music Ensemble
Date: Thursday, August 12, 2021
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A select ensemble of ten talented singers and instrumentalists from five states, led by Village Harmony founder and director Larry Gordon, assisted by Avery Book and Sinead O'Mahoney, will perform at the York Street Meeting House, 153 York Street, Lyndon at 7:00 pm on Thursday, Aug.2 12. Village Harmony, a non-profit, umbrella organization based in Marshfield, promotes the study and performance of ethnic singing traditions from around the world. For more than thirty years, they have organized teen ensembles each summer in New England and ensembles for mixed-age and adult singers in numerous foreign countries. The concert program features a remarkable variety of world harmony singing traditions: South African songs and dances, traditional songs from Caucasus Georgia, Corsica, and the Balkans, American shape-note songs, songs of social struggle, and a set of renaissance pieces. Some numbers are accompanied by a band of fiddles, accordion and percussion.
