Latest testimonial from a happy customer following a recent performance by Wight Harmony at a 90th, yes 90th birthday celebration:
I cannot thank Wight Harmony enough for the wonderful performance they gave us on the occasion of Ken’s 90th birthday celebration at Shanklin Cricket Club. They mesmerised everyone with their great repertoire of popular songs. We could not have provided more fitting entertainment for the occasion and without doubt it will be something that will always be remembered by everyone who came. The majority of people at the party were local residents and the conversation when meeting them again in the days following has focussed on the entertainment. So from the bottom of our hearts a very BIG thank you for making the occasion so successful and memorable.
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 acappella 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!
