A summary

Singing to ground you, lift you, inspire and connect you. Feral Voices Choir is an outdoor, nature based community choir. I teach simple songs with 3 or 4 part harmonies and rounds, with a nature based theme. We’ll cover some songs that can be learnt in a single session, and some that we’ll build over a few weeks. All songs will be taught acapella and there is no sheet music, although occasionally I may provide word sheets for more lyric dense songs. We gather weekly on a Wednesday evening around a cosy fire, under a parachute in the beautiful Whimsy Woods in Brill. If the weather is really bad, we have permission to use the yurt on site which has electricity and heating. We are an inclusive community and all abilities are welcome. There is always plenty of tea and biscuits. We have a tiered pricing structure for all incomes, block bookings and drop ins are both available. Why: For over 5 years, I have been training and working as an outdoor educator, facilitating groups in nature ...

Elena Harris·You were wild once, don't let them tame you!
Elena feels most at home barefoot, under a canopy of trees and stars, bathed in the view of a communal fire. She has always had a deep love for wild places and is passionate about enabling children to pursue their natural curiosity and wonder of the natural world. Elena has 2 children whom she home-educated in their early years. This experience inspired her to immerse herself in the arts of the old ways and primitive skills, so she could pass these skills onto her children. Singing is also a huge part of Elena's life and work. She uses song to bring people together in community in nature in all her courses. An experienced nature connection facilitator, Elena is trained as a level 3 Forest School Leader, as well as having completed numerous professional trainings with Wildwise, including 'Call of the Wild' Foundation in Outdoor Leadership. Elena co-founded Wildlings, an outdoor provision for electively home educated children and is currently working on a new project, 'Earthlings With Elena', as well as performing regular facilitation roles on behalf of Wildwise. During term time, Elena leads weekly Forest School sessions at 2 Oxfordshire primary schools, as well as running Sprouts and Feral Voices Choir at in the woods at Ambroise Farm.

The Beginning

This is just the beginning! Our beautiful setting is in a small woodland on top of a hill with a fire place! We will have a fire going, but it may be windy and or raining, so please dress warmly with extra layers in the winter months. Also it will be dark! We will have some lighting, but please bring a torch if you feel you will need one. Pricing: This is my passion project, and I want this to be accessible to everyone, so I have a range of pricing, please pay as much as you can afford, and bear in mind I am trying to make a living! If you can only afford the lower price bracket, that is absolutely fine. Please get in touch if you have any financial barriers to coming. If you can afford to pay a little more, you can be a patron, thank you so much! Please book a space either way so I have an idea of numbers attending.
