Welcome to Solid Harmony Choir Website
Solid Harmony is a young people's choir directed by Jane Wheeler. It was set up in April 2002 and has gone from strength to strength.  Based in Newham, East London, it has over 40 members aged 10 -25 from schools, colleges and universities across the borough, with a strong senior and alumni membership taking part in NewVIc's Activ8 program. Solid Harmony has 3 choirs who rehearse on Mondays; an all comers and beginner group, an advanced group (auditioned) from 6 - 7.30pm and a show choir of young professionals that come together for special projects and events.  The choir is renowned for singing a wide range of music, including Gospel, R n' B and Rock, to Folk, World music and Classical. They work with a wide range of vocal leaders, including Paul Watson, Randolph Matthews, Geneta Crooke, Eska Mtungwazi and Jason Yarde, as well as their Musical Director, Jane Wheeler. Solid Harmony encourages members to write and compose for the choir. It has it's own band, including alumni students Diân Gasper (keys) and Samuel Awotayo (drums).

SPRING UPDATE!

Solid Harmony & The Young Leaders Project The sun has finally begun to shine. Solid Harmony have been as busy as ever through the winter months. They performed at 2 Singing parties at Stratford Circus over Christmas and recently in March. They sang a range of repertoire, including a beautiful arrangement of Fields Of Gold, by Nick Bowers-Broadbent and and funky rendition of It's Time, arranged by the choir, facilitated by Paul Watson. The Solid Harmony Collective Young Leaders supported younger singers in the New Young Voices Collective (NewYVC) now resident at Stratford Circus, and performed their own piece. Some of the Young Leaders are working along side teachers in primary and secondary school to inspire children to sing and share good practice.

This term we continue to work with  a range of specialists and high level practitioners, the first of which is Dr. Doreen Rao visiting from Chicago, who will take the Young Leaders and Solid Harmony choir through their vocal paces. We will also be working with Paul Watson and some of our Alumni singers who are now working as Vocal Artists, including Bukky Abdul, Nathan Devonte and Stefan Vitalis. Finally, our Young Leaders have been successful in receiving funding from Newham Council's Go For It Grant to continue with their professional development and support other young singers to find their voices.
