Military Wives Choir Pledge

Help Akrotiri Military Wives Choir to remember them
Akrotir Military Wives Choir is looking to release a new album to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War 1, singing alongside 73 other Military Wives Choirs across the UK and overseas, but they need support to make it happen.
Fierce heroism from the troops at the Front in 1914 was matched by the country’s women who raised children alone, nursed, and worked tirelessly despite the loss of loved ones. The Military Wives Choirs are stepping up to tell the story of these women like no one else can, as it is theirs.
Through the site Pledge Music, choir members are asking the public to pre-order the album now to allow them to get into the recording studio early next year. The commemorative album will feature four brand new songs written specially for the Military Wives Choirs by prestigious composers in the pop, film and classical worlds around the themes of remembrance, patriotism and military life, as well as music from past and present referencing World War 1 marching songs and iconic service marches.
With over 70 choirs in British military bases across the UK and overseas, the Military Wives Choirs is a charity that brings women in the military community together through singing. Being part of a Military Wives Choir makes a positive difference to women’s lives by improving well-being, building friendships and developing skills.
To support the Akrotiri Military Wives Choir in this project, visit If pledgers select to pay by card, no money will be taken until the album is released next year.
Further information on how to pledge or join our choir can be found:
