Bringing military women closer together through singing
The Yeovilton Military Wives Choir formed in September 2012 as a result of the outstanding success of the original Military Wives Choirs from Chivenor and Plymouth, made famous through the BBC TV programme with Gareth Malone. The Yeovilton Military Wives Choir now has over 50 members who meet weekly in Ilchester to have fun, rehearse together and provide mutual support as they deal with the challenges of Service life.
Come and sing with us
Yeovilton Military Wives Choir was set up to bring women in the military community closer together through singing. There are no auditions required and no need to read music. All you need is a military connection.
The Choir has had a fantastic year; as well as celebrating our second birthday, we have had some outstanding performances and lots of laughter along the way. We kicked the year off to a wonderful start with our debut performance at the Octagon Theatre, we appeared on the well-known BBC TV Programme 'Flog It' (on more than one airing!), we had a summer of singing at the Homer Farm Fest and Sherborne Castle Sprin Fair, rounded off by a performance on home turf for the scorching Yeovilton Air Day. The latter part of the year saw us singing at Westland's & west Coker and we will be revisiting a YMWC favourite in December – the Concert under Concorde!
