Date: Saturday 9th September 2017
Presented by Pip Wright of Kana Kernow
Northern Harmony is a group of 16 brilliant young musicians and singers who will be visiting West Cornwall for the first time in September 2017 and giving their only concert in the Penwith area at Marazion Community Centre.
Led by Larry Gordon and Patty Cuyler and based in central Vermont, Northern Harmony is the highest level performing group under the Village Harmony umbrella. Since 1993 they have toured and performed widely throughout America and Europe to great critical acclaim.
Not a permanent year-round group, the ensemble is constituted specifically for each extended performing tour (typically 7-10 weeks). The singers include some of the most talented veterans of other Village Harmony performing ensembles.
Many of the younger members have sung with Village Harmony since their young teens, and most have studied traditional singing styles first hand with native teachers in South Africa, Bulgaria, Corsica and Caucasus Georgia.
Transcending the traditional definition of choral music, the group is particularly renowned for its command of varied world ethnic 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.
Northern Harmony’s Autumn 2017 Tour will include two months of tour dates across the UK, France, Germany and Italy, with a final week of performances in New England in early November.
This is the only concert in the Penwith area. Not to be missed !.

Kana Kernow (Singing Cornwall)
( Singing Cornwall )
Kana Kernow was set up in 2013 by local singing leaders Pip Wright and Claire Ingleheart to provide opportunities for people to come together to sing for enjoyment, to learn new songs and to experience new styles of singing.
We run workshops in the heart of our communities in village halls, leading some workshops ourselves as well as drawing on the rich wealth of local singing leaders.
A couple of times a year we invite excellent singing leaders from further afield to Cornwall so we can all experience exciting, good quality, diverse singing workshops locally.
