The choir meets every Tuesday evening from 6.30 – 8.30 pm – creche facilities are provided. Come along and see what a friendly bunch we are!
Wattisham Military Wives Choir is a fabulous group of wives and girlfriends of personnel serving at Wattisham Flying Station, Suffolk.
We have around fifty choir members and meet up weekly to sing a range of uplifting songs, gossip and forget about life for a couple of hours.
Following our album recording session in Colchester back in September, Wattisham Military Wives Choir enjoyed the privilege of performing at Norwich Cathedral on 26th November as part of the network-wide ‘Home For Christmas’ tour. Also appearing at the event were Honington and Marham Military Wives Choirs. Your very own choir features on two of the album songs: Home for Christmas and O Holy Night, both of which were also performed at the Cathedral. We wish to express gratitude to our fantastic Music Director, Jennie Francis who arranged many of the songs we performed. One of our members commented afterwards, “It was an amazing evening. I especially loved singing with the cathedral organ – it gave me goosebumps!”
Although it has been a fun experience, the main purpose of our choir is to provide a network of friends who enjoy singing together. Because we are together every week, we are able to act as a support to each other. New people are welcomed and begin to feel at home almost straight away.
On Saturday the 17th September we descended on Colchester along with a number of other Choirs to record 2 tracks for the upcoming Christmas Album, Home for Christmas which is to be released at the end of November. How exciting !!!
The Wattisham Military Wives Choir feature on the third Military Wives Choirs album “Home for Christmas” which will be released in November this year.
