Welcome to the website of Wild Harmony. This site is still under development.
WILD HARMONY is a small, friendly South Brent based community choir, which meets regularly to share the fun of singing together and learning songs and harmonies from around the world.
Emily Roblyn leads Wild Harmony. Emily grew up in Canada and was encouraged to harmonise and perform from an early age so that singing is so much a part of her she doesn’t ever remember being without it. She is passionate about sharing her love of people coming together to sing and the magic of harmony.
To see the dates of Wild Harmony sessions for the current term click on the DATES tab
The SONGS part of the website includes words of all songs we sing or have sung with Emily and collections of some earlier Wild Harmony leaders
To find a song, click on the ‘Songs’ tab along the top, then look at the list of songs and categories.
Most songs also have an attachment in Word with the lyrics for printing out if you wish.
Where I have recorded us singing the song either in performance or rehearsal that is also on the webpage - click on the music attachment
Wherever possible I have acknowledged songwriters and arrangers. Apologies for any omissions.
