A newly formed military wives choir from Cottesmore are gearing up for their first big performance, taking place on Friday.

The Cottesmore Military Wives Choir will perform for the first time at Kendrew Barracks on Friday, January 16, in front of their families and friends.

The group of 50 women, made up of wives, mothers, partners and daughters of servicemen, will perform for over 300 guests and dignitaries from Kendrew Barracks and the surrounding area.

Under the guidance of musical director Sarah Doyle and with pianist Diana De-Wett the group has been hard at work practising for the upcoming concert.

Their repertoire includes Gary Barlow’s Sing, as well as old time favourites such as Walking on Sunshine by Kimberley Rew for Katrina and the Waves’, Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart, Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey and Gareth Malone’s Stronger Together.

The concert is guest list only, but the group hopes to perform for the public at a number of events in the upcoming year.

The group whose members range in age from 20 to 60 practise every Tuesday at Cottesmore Primary School.
