      Village Harmony - A Living History Concert
      Sat., April 10, 1999, 8 PM, Holy Cross Church, 126 High St. Santa Cruz

      On Saturday, April 10, at 8 PM, Village Harmony, a teen choir from Vermont,
      will present an evening of choral music from the New England Shape Note
      tradition as well as music from around the world. The concert will take
      place at Holy Cross Church, 126 High Street in Santa Curz. Donations will
      be gratefully accepted at the door or donation tickets are available at
      Westside Stories, near the Mission Street Safeway in Santa Cruz. Call
      457-2021 for tickets.

      Village Harmony is a collaboration of young musicians, ages 13 and up,
      based in Vermont This group is dynamic, joyous, and unfailingly musical,
      and features an unusual and lively repertoire. They sing from memory with a
      powerful, remarkably in tune, straight-toned sound. To watch Village
      Harmony is almost as much fun as listening to them. Their informality and
      the energy of their close-knit interaction communicates directly to the
      audience. These teenagers are serious and passionate and are searching for
      music and musical experience which is in some way transcendent.

      Although a teenage group, Village Harmony has always featured American
      shape-note and early New England singing school music and now, increasingly,
      new shape-note style compositions by its members, introducing Village Harmony
      participants to the intense fervor of the fasola singing community and
      insuring its continuation . At the same time they find equal joy in many
      other kinds of music: Balkan village music, early music (primarily
      renaissance and early baroque sacred works), South African songs, gospel
      and spirituals. In past years Village Harmony has performed on Garrison
      Keillor's Prairie Home Companion and also at the Smithsonian Institution in
      Washington, DC. Each year their spring tour takes them somewhere new where
      without fail they are received as one of the most exciting young singing
      groups of our time.

      The Santa Cruz Shape Note Society will join Village Harmony for several
      numbers during the concert.
