House Blend, formed in 2006, is an assembly of 23 veteran singers from Vermont and New Hampshire, devoted to the collective exploration of the many styles of mostly a cappella songs from around the world and throughout musical history. A democratically-governed party of self-professed singing addicts, the "Blenders" look to the artistic direction of all of its members to guide the group, creating a harmonious brew that reflects their diverse musical backgrounds. Their first CD appeared in May 2008 followed by a tour in the Loire Valley region of France in June with Chorale Cantoria. Their second CD, “Percolatin’,” came out in June 2011.
In July 2010, Cantoria came to Vermont for a 10 day concert tour with House Blend. Continuing the exchange, House Blend returned to France in July 2013. (See the Facebook page for pics.)
