Latest News - Come and hear top class competition singing at the Isle of Wight Festival of Music, Singing and Drama, All Saints Church, Ryde, on March 4th 2016 at 6pm. Wight Harmony will be defending its wins in the Barbershop category for the last five years!
Welcome to the website of Wight Harmony, the Isle of Wight's premier Barbershop singing chorus. Here you'll find all you need to know about us, that is, how we enjoy our great hobby of acapella singing in the barbershop style, how you can join us and how you can book us for your special occasion.
I am Dave Bryant, the M.D. [Musical Director] of Wight Harmony. We have around 40 very friendly singers who meet every Thursday at Wootton for a weekly rehearsal and attend many sing-outs and competitions. We always welcome new singers too through "Learn-To-Sing" courses [our next will be in 2016] and by simply looking in throughout the year.
We also have our exceptionally talented quartet, Quaynote, who complement the main chorus’ repertoire at performances, and also compete in national quartet competitions, their latest success being at the 2015 Bournemouth Music Competitions Festival where they won the Barbershop Small group [8 or under] Class. They are also available to sing at weddings and similar celebrations etc. – see www.quaynotequartet.co.uk for details.
We also extend a very warm welcome to those Barbershoppers visiting the Island and who would like to meet us. Singing is great fun! Singing acapella is so very satisfying. They say it's the harmonies!
Come and try it out!
So if you are interested in joining, booking or visiting us, or simply browsing, welcome to Wight Harmony!
