On this Armistice Day, Military Wives Choirs across the UK and overseas are performing at services in their local communities, acknowledging this poignant occasion.
Music played an important role during World War 1, both in the trenches and back at home. It was extremely important for the troops, who would sing for solidarity and to boost morale.
Our choirs continue that theme, bringing women in the military community closer together through singing to support Forces families. Therefore, today, we recognise this.

The West of Scotland Military Wives Choir were honoured to perform for the annual SSAFA Bereaved Families Support Group’s (BFSG) conference. The forty strong choir sung a fifty minute upbeat set after the conference’s completion dinner, held at the Radisson Blu, Glasgow.
Our network of choirs is expanding all the time and we are proud to be celebrating 1st Birthday’s for MWC Aldershot, MWC Paderborn, MWC South London, MWC Yeovilton and MWC Cranwell. Congratulation ladies, the cakes look yummy!
Today the Military Wives Choirs Foundation launch our new website. As well as a new design it also offers a range of new features including My Story, Interactive map and an events page.
