Military Wives Choir presents TIME TO SING
Time : 7.30pm
Location : Wimborne Minster
Type of Event : Charity Music Concert

The Military Wives Choir will be singing at Wimborne Minster to raise funds for Lewis-Manning Hospice.

They are forming a larger than usual choir from local groups from across the South to create ‘Time to Sing’ as they are being joined by locally based mezzo soprano Grace Lovelass (who will perform a separate concert in aid of the Hospice on September 22, at St Peter’s, Parkstone).

Military Wives Choirs ‘bring women in the military community closer together through singing’. There are more than 70 choirs in the UK and overseas, singing everywhere from village halls to concert halls, from schools to stadiums. The latest album, Remember, focuses on 1918-2018, ‘telling the story of women then and now’.

These women not only raise money for the Military Wives Choirs Foundation, but are frequently invited to sing in support of other military charities or charities close to the heart of communities.
