Final spring concerts Sat, April 18 & Sat., April 26
Sat, April 26, 11am
At the annual NEFFA festival.
Suggested admission at the door is $12 for adults, $8 for students or seniors.
Our 2015 concert program includes South African songs and dances, sacred and secular music from Caucasus Georgia, Corsica, and Bulgaria, traditional and contemporary American shape-note songs, Spanish renaissance songs, and Beatus Vir by French baroque composer Antoine Charpentier. Now in our tenth year, our inter-generational group of 60 teen and adult singers is reknowned for our ability to radically changeour sound as we range through radically different genres: from the dark and sonorous Georgian timbre to the ultra-bright Bulgarian hard-voice, from straight-ahead shape note singing to the rich and mellifluous South African sound.

Northern Harmony Women's Quartet:
Eclectic vocal music for women's voices from around the world, a one-off reunion of Village Harmony directors Suzannah Park, Emily Miller, Mollie Stone and Patty Cuyler.
In the chapel at Bethany Church, Main Street, Montpelier. Concert tickets at the door. Suggested admission is $15 adults, $10 students, elders and starving artists. The program will feature harmony singing on the subjects of love, loss, praise and weather, with music from the Renaissance alongside traditional duets, trios and quartets from the US, Caucasus Georgia, Corsica, Sweden and South Africa.
Northern Harmony is a shifting collaboration of accomplished singer-instrumentalists. This incarnation of the ensemble is a quartet of four powerful women singers, all professional performers and teachers in their own right, including Village Harmony co-director Patty Cuyler. Rounding out the quartet is Mollie Stone, conductor at the University of Chicago and Director of World Music at the Chicago Children's Choir; Suzannah Park, a third-generation singer of American ballads and folksongs; and Emily Miller, old-time country singer and fiddler with the Sweetback Sisters.
