The Village Harmony Alumni Ensemble will present a concert Saturday, May 25, at 7 p.m. at the 72nd Congregational Church in Hyde Park.
This world music vocal ensemble includes a dozen college-age and young adult Village Harmony veterans, many of whom have sung and traveled with Village Harmony for years.
The program features songs and dances from South Africa, contemporary American shape-note songs, quartet gospel, traditional songs from Corsica, Bosnia, Croatia and Bulgaria, Monteverdi madrigals and other Renaissance works.
Admission is $10 at the door. Proceeds will be split 50/50 with Village Harmony and the 2nd Congregational Church.
Leading the Village Harmony Alumni Ensemble are Larry Gordon, Sophie Michaux and Adam Simon. Gordon founded Village Harmony and has been leading choirs and community music in Vermont for over 40 years. Michaux and Simon, based in Boston, are singers who have participated in many European tours with Northern Harmony and also perform with the vocal quartet Colomba.
