We are always looking for new members and we would love you to join us, we pride ourselves on giving you a warm welcome and an instant support network!
The choir is about taking some time out for yourself, we meet once a week on a Thursday and start singing at six, it's widely reported that singing is good for your health and well being, our ladies will tell you it does just that and more! When your family may be miles away, you'll get support from ladies who know just how you feel.
Whilst we have to perform (to enable the choir to survive) we have learnt how to do that, all our fun rehearsals gear up to a public performance, which whilst scary is something every member loves! You really do not have to be a 'singer' to come along and have fun with us, you may or may not have been part of a choir, it is not about having the best voice or having to perform solo but it absolutely is about having fun, learning a new skill alongside ladies, who will become your friends.
It truly is skill building, you do not need to read music but you will learn that, you do not need to be a performer but you will learn that too, as well as increasing your confidence! If you then go on to get posted and have to leave us, you can join a MWC all over the country, where you can instantly step into a new support network! Plus when you return to Catterick Garrison you can come straight back to choir.
The criteria for joining are that you are one or more of the following to ensure eligibility:
- Wife/ Civil Partner
- Affiliate (eg Mum, daughter of a member of the Armed Forces, teaching in a Garrison School, working in a MOD establishment)
- Girlfriend or a member of the Armed Forces
