Military Wives Choir will include Inverness on eight-date tour in October
FOLLOWING the nationwide release of the film Military Wives, the much-loved Military Wives Choirs have announced they will be performing together in a widely-anticipated eight-date concert series – including Inverness.
The renowned choirs will perform in Birmingham, York, Nottingham, London, Eden Court in Inverness, Ipswich, Bournemouth and Edinburgh.
Now with over 2,000 members, the Military Wives Choirs is a charity that brings all women in the military community (not just wives) closer together and empowers them through singing across the UK and overseas.
Since the original choirs featured in Gareth Malone’s BBC television series The Choir, and obtaining their first UK Christmas number one single with Wherever You Are, the Military Wives Choirs have released a number of albums and become acclaimed and much-loved artists.
The October 2020 concert series will see the choirs performing some of their most popular hits alongside tracks from the film’s soundtrack Military Wives.
Out today, which coincides with the film’s release, starring BAFTA-winning actor Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan. The soundtrack features choral favourites from the real-life Military Wives Choirs and new tracks by the on-screen cast, celebrating the shared experiences of the women whose lives were changed forever by conflict.
Commenting on the tour, the Military Wives Choirs said: “Bringing together choirs from across our network to perform together is a perfect example of how our organisation lives our ethos of ‘sing, share and support’.
"Our organisation is geographically diverse and we’re thrilled to be performing across the UK in wonderful venues to celebrate both our charity and the launch of this exciting film and soundtrack.”
