Yeovilton Military Wives Choir’s Concert of the Year!
Yeovilton Military Wives Choir is excited to be performing in their fourth annual concert at the Octagon Theatre in Yeovil and invites supporters and music lovers to join them. The concert will feature solo and group performances from ladies within the choir; these performances are unique to this concert and are not to be missed.
Families of service personnel move around frequently and it can often be tough to put down roots or make new friends, which can leave women feeling isolated. With research showing that singing in a choir can help to alleviate stress and improve aspects of mental health, this is where the Military Wives Choirs, of which there are over 70 in military bases across the UK and overseas, come in. Ladies come together to sing, share and support.
With no experience or auditions necessary to join, Yeovilton Military Wives Choir based in Ilchester is a fun and safe space where any woman with a military connection can take time for themselves to make new friends, share experiences and sing side by side with a group who understand the nature of forces life. Women are offered the chance to be part of unique musical opportunities, performing both within Somerset and nationally coming together with other Military Wives Choirs across the country.
Liz Haigh from Yeovil has been a member of the Yeovilton Military Wives Choir for six years. She said: “I decided to join the Yeovilton Military Wives Choir because I wanted to meet new people as my husband was away a lot. As someone who hasn’t sung in a choir before, I was a little nervous at first, but all the ladies were so welcoming and helpful, and I’ve made friends for life. We are all stronger together!
“Over the last six years I have sung in many concerts, and this will be my fourth Octagon Concert; the show is the highlight of the year and is exclusively ours, it is a bit different to our other concerts. We feature solo and small group performances which are stunning and can only be heard at this concert. You must come along!”
The Yeovilton Military Wives Choir’s fourth annual concert is on Sunday 7 April at 7.30pm in the auditorium at The Octagon Theatre in Yeovil. For ticket information please visit www.octagon-theatre.co.uk.
