MONTPELIER – Northern Harmony, the world music vocal ensemble based in Vermont, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, at the Unitarian Church.
The 13 young singers, led by Larry Gordon, will present a mix of world harmony traditions including South African songs and dances, traditional polyphony from Georgia, Corsica, and the Balkans, American shape-note singing and quartet gospel, and Medieval motets. Fresh from its 15th European tour, Northern Harmony has won a wide reputation for their remarkable command of the different singing styles and timbres appropriate to these different traditions.
Northern Harmony is the highest level performing group under the umbrella of the world music organization Village Harmony, which sponsors singing camps and workshops in New England and many parts of the world (see www.villageharmony.org). The singers are primarily graduates of Village Harmony singing programs, and most have studied traditional singing styles first hand with native teachers in South Africa, Bulgaria, Corsica and Caucasus Georgia.
Admission at the door is $15, $10 for students. For more information call 426-3210, or go online to www.villageharmony.org.
