I’VE BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO CHAT WITH SOME OF THE @MWCHOIRS LADIES ABOUT THEIR UPCOMING TOUR AND CHRISTMAS ALBUM

What is the band name?
Military Wives Choirs


What is your genre of music?
Classical/choral


Give us a little bio about you as a band and as individuals.

Following the enormous success of No. 1 single Wherever You Are in 2012, Military Wives Choirs have been set up across the country and abroad, bringing more and more women from within the military community closer together through singing.

Released in 2012, the debut album ‘In My Dreams’ featured five choirs. ‘Stronger Together’ shortly followed, featuring 760 choir members from 24 choirs.

With 65 participating choirs, ‘Home for Christmas’ is the Military Wives Choirs’ biggest project yet. The choirs, comprising 1006 singers, can all be heard on the title track Home for Christmas, and the album also features six classic carols which have been updated with lyrics reflecting what Christmas means to women in the military community.

The dedication put in to the all albums is amazing and the songs you all sing, you announced the project in Trafalgar Square how was it?

A selection of ladies came to Trafalgar Square to announce the album; it was great fun to be in tinsel in October and we got plenty of attention from passers by!
When you’re not doing music, what do you do?

Our ladies have a wide variety of jobs, and are mothers, wives, girlfriends, and sometimes serving military personnel themselves.
What quote or saying do you always stick by?

Our motto is ‘Stronger Together’.
