SOME OTHER EVENTS WHICH MAY BE OF INTEREST TO WILD HARMONY DEVOTEES

Dartington Monday Fun Choir: Weekly on Mondays - second half term: 24 February, 2, 9, 16 & 23 March from 5.30 - 6.30pm in Studio 3, Space Studios, Dartington Hall led by Fran André who will be familiar to Wild Harmony singers. There are some proposed changes for the autumn/winter & spring terms, with the aim of encouraging a core group of committed regular singers as well as allowing ‘drop-ins’. While aiming for it still to be a fun, relaxed, no-pressure group learning songs by ear, where all are welcome, there is the possibility of more continuity to facilitate slightly longer, full songs, which may take a few sessions to learn. Core group singers will pay upfront for the whole term, but at a discounted rate: Half termly price per singer £24 for first half; £20 for second half- (£18/£15 - for Schumacher students / Dartington Hall staff & volunteers); General drop in rate £5.50 (£4.50 - for Schumacher students / Dartington Hall staff & volunteers); Summer term: drop in rate across the board. If you would like to be part of the committed core group please email Fran at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to confirm.

All Sing Sundays A regular drop-in community (non-religious) sing-song on a Sunday morning from 10.15am - 12.00, led each time by one of our wonderful local singing teachers upstairs in Buckfastleigh Town Hall. Come and join us to sing in glorious harmony. Open to all, including families with children of all ages (some activities for children (or grown-ups!) will be provided in case they run out of steam with singing). After singing stay to eat together (bring food to share). Lunch from 12.00.

Saturday 21 March 2020: Harmony Singing Day with Su Hart from 10am-4pm in St John’s Church, Bridgetown, Totnes. Su Hart is a wonderful and unique singing leader, extremely highly regarded within the NVN (Natural Voice Network). She brings a depth of singing teaching experience in a wide range of musical genres, but also has had the unique privilege of travelling many times to the African Rainforest in Cameroon to sing and live with the Baka Pygmies. The collective spiritual singing of the Baka women has informed and inspired her musical development. This led to setting up the acclaimed world-music band ‘Baka Beyond’ who have rocked many a festival stage! Su will teach a variety of songs, including some from her Baka rainforest collection. Come and brighten up the end of winter, and start to sing in the Spring! If you would like to, bring lunch to share with others.
