The Kinloss Military Wives Choir will support Dyke and Edinkillie Church’s fundraising with the first local performance of songs from the new album “Remember”. The concert, to be held at Dyke Church on Saturday 7th July at 7:30pm, will be the latest in a series of events raising funds to transform facilities so that they are accessible by the whole community. Entry will be by donation.
The Military Wives choirs enjoyed popular success in 2016 when their album reached number two in the classical music charts, just behind Aled Jones. The new album will be launched at House of Bruar just a week before the concert.
The Dyke Church concert will include brand new songs especially written for the Military Wives Choirs and some familiar new and old songs that have been newly arranged.
Alison Rodgers, who leads the fundraising team for Dyke Church said: “We are delighted that the Kinloss Military Wives Choir has been able to fit us into their busy schedule and help us with the fundraising here at Dyke Church. We are excited for a very special occasion, being the first opportunity for us to hear songs from their new album”.
The project at Dyke follows on from the building of an accessible path to the church and will transform the church hall, kitchen and toilets to broaden the use of the facilities.
The Kinloss choir has 25 members, a mix of wives, veterans and veterans’ wives. “Remember” was recorded at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh with a theme of remembrance, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.
