Vermont-based Village Harmony, the remarkable teen world music ensemble, presents its first concert program of the summer. The group is led by Sinead O’Mahoney, Bongani Magatyana from South Africa, and Polina Shepherd from the UK. The 22 brilliant teen singers come from seven states plus Canada and France. Village Harmony, a non-profit umbrella organization based in Vermont, 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. Each Village Harmony ensemble develops its own unique sound with a different team of leaders. All share common traits: a powerful, natural, unrestrained vocal sound; a remarkable variety of vocal styles and timbres appropriate to the ethnic and traditional music; and a visible, vibrant community among the singers and audience as they share in a joyful celebration of music. Admission is by donation at the door. For further information visit www.villageharmony.org or email villageharmony@gmail.com.
