Northern Harmony

Northern Harmony Tour 2014

Founded in 1993, Northern Harmony has won a world-wide reputation for its “sheer agility, vitality and color,” and its command of varied world ethnic singing styles. It 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. Northern Harmony’s singers are primarily brilliant young 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.  The group is a project choir, constituted anew for a two month performing tour once every 18 months.

Northern Harmony programs always present a remarkable range of different 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.  Their honest and heartfelt singing never fails to draw enthusiastic response from their varied audiences.

The 2014 autumn tour program will include South African songs and dances, traditional polyphony from Georgia, Corsica, and the Balkans, American shape-note singing and quartet gospel, and renaissance motets.
