Global Harmony was formed in 1991 – the first Community Choir of its kind (unaccompanied and with mixed voices) in Totnes; a second group was started in Exeter a few years later.
We sing for the joy of singing beautiful music, for a weekly boost of uplifting energy and fun.
We sing a variety of music from African and Gospel, to English and Eastern European folk, classic pop songs, and contemporary pieces.
Harmony parts are taught by ear and sheet music is sometimes available. There is a range of ability in GH, you do not need to be able to sight read music, but do need to be able to hold a tune; members progress through voice work exercises at the start of each session and by exploring different musical genres.
Commitment is needed when concerts are imminent if you want to sing at that performance.
Being a member of a community choir is a wonderful social experience, combining friendship and musical development- in other words great fun!
