Concert & Singing Workshop by American vocal ensemble, Northern Harmony in Wrexham on 30th September

Wrexham Community Choir is delighted to host, Northern Harmony , the unique world-music vocal ensemble from Vermont in the USA, who will be performing for the first time in Wrexham and running a singing workshop  to share their incredible  songs and voices. 

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.  Transcending the traditional definition of choral music, the group is particularly renowned for its command of varied world singing styles, from the hearty and ultra bright Bulgarian “hard voice” to the equally powerful Georgian timbre, from the rich, mellifluous South African style or the unrestrained American shape-note sound to a delicate, pure, early music timbre.

Northern HarmonyWendy Paintsil, Organiser of Wrexham Community Choir said “We are delighted that Northern Harmony are coming to Wrexham – they have a world reputation and we hope as many people will come along and take part in the workshop and enjoy the performance”

Join Larry Gordon and Northern Harmony for a singing workshop including American shape-note singing, gospel, and South African song. Northern Harmony singers will support each vocal part, making the teaching particularly efficient and rewarding. No experience necessary. The workshop will be followed  by a concert of world harmony traditions including South African songs and dances, traditional polyphony from Georgia, Corsica, and the Balkans, American shape-note singing and quartet gospel.

At the Wrexham Methodist Church, Regent Street, Wrexham – Tuesday 30th September at 7.30pm Admission is £7.  Contact 01978 290680 for more information
