THE Rosyth branch of the Military Wives Choir will be performing in Edinburgh this weekend to celebrate a decade of singing.

They will be performing at Greyfriars Kirk on Saturday from 7pm, alongside other divisions of the group, including those from the capital, at the 10th anniversary concert.

Sarah Curds, the social media volunteer for the choir, told the Press: “It’s been planned for a while, it was postponed during COVID and the lockdown so we’re looking forward to it!

“We’re quite excited about the 10th anniversary concert series because we’re joining together with some of our sister choirs from other areas and we make a bigger sound, it’s quite special."

Earlier this month they performed at a private event for the the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA), a charity providing guidance and support for those who are currently serving or have family in the military, at the Edinburgh Castle war memorial.

She continued: “They’re the charity that are behind the Military Wives Choir charities so they invited us.

"It was a wonderful warm up for the concert at the end of the month.

“It can be quite daunting doing these events but it's a wonderful sense of achievement when you’ve done it.”

At the moment, the group is made up of 15 members, all of whom have some connection to the Armed Forces.

There are made up of veterans, people in the military, military daughters and wives in the choir and they’re always looking for more voices to join.

“We’ve all got these common experiences,” Sarah said.

“I’ve grown up in the military community and when my dad left the Navy, I felt like I was missing something.

“Joining the choir, I’ve got back that sense of being in the military community again.

"We’re all very different, different ages, backgrounds and personalities, but when we come together to sing and share a cup of tea and some cake, it’s just really nice.

"We feel like a family.”

They meet on Wednesdays at MoD Caledonia on Hilton Road, Rosyth between 7:30pm and 9pm.

Membership fees are £10 per month and you don’t need to have prior experience to join but you must be a wife or cohabiting partner of serving military personnel, serving or retired military personnel, an other family member of serving military personnel, a wife or family member of former serving personnel.
