An Australian Military Wives Choir is starting up in the Shoalhaven Area of New South Wales.
We are looking for enthusiastic singers to help form this new group.
Our Origins: The Australian Military Wives Choir began in June 2012 with a light-hearted suggestion between friends in an email: “Military Wives Choir. Should we start one?” This grew into a small group of singers meeting in the Duntroon Chapel a few months later. From the beginning, the choir felt supported by its community with performance requests coming in before the first rehearsal!
The heart of the choir is embodied in its values of
– inclusion – the Choir is about what we do as women rather than what our partners may do at work, with a focus on our common threads.
– flexibility – allows members to join the choir while balancing other demands on their time.
– service – within the choir is encouraged and appreciated as members desire to help others experience the benefits of singing as a group.
– excellence – comes as we work together to improve the Choir as a whole.
“Whenever I sing … I am reminded that I am not alone in my journey as a military wife.” – AMWChoir member
