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.

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.

Some other impending events which may be of interest to Wild Harmony devotees:
Friday 28 April 2017 Party in the Town: annual celebration for the community to come together and participate in a day of music, food and fun in Totnes. It’s a free event, with the exception of the headline act – Noisettes and there’s something for all ages. Activities start from 2pm with a singing class for under 5s, and there will be craft workshops and things to look out for on the high street all afternoon. A jam-packed evening of concerts kicks off at 6pm with a performance by local school children who have been working with the incredible Brazilian percussionist and composer Adriano Adewale. Over 50 local acts will then join the party – from singer songwriters to samba bands with jazz and poetry in between. Check out the lineup to see what’s on and plan your night out. The team behind local festival Sea Change is taking charge of The Barrel House and programming a couple of acts alongside Party in the Town to give a flavour for what is coming in the summer – and the curators of Dartington’s After Dark series are back with an evening of acts from Dartington College alumni. Other venues include The Bay Horse, The Bull Inn, Devon Harp Centre, St Mary’s Church, The Royal Seven Stars, The Dartmouth Inn (- where, at 6.00-6.30pm, you can see South Brent's Ukelective, "From the depths of Dartmoor with ukuleles, percussion, a chronosynclastic infudibulum and an anachronistic mariachi, they bring popular music into a melodic melting-pot."!) and unexpected performances, parades and explosive moments on the High Street.
