The CMWC is growing!

We are so excited to see the Canadian Military Wives Choirs phenomenon taking off! In addition to Ottawa, there are now CMWCs in Comox (BC), Edmonton (AB),  Petawawa (ON), Trenton (ON), North Bay (ON) and Greenwood (NS). Work is also underway to grow choirs in Victoria (BC), and Washington DC (USA). It is our hope that one day there will be a CMWC on every military base in Canada.

The Canadian Military Wives Choir Ottawa began in the fall of 2013. Following in the footsteps of the UK British Military Wives Choir phenomenon, the Canadian MWC is a three-part women's choir and all members are partners of active military personnel. We come together weekly to sing, make new friends, and have fun. No musical experience is necessary. The choir is all about support — both vocal and personal. In that kind of environment, it's amazing how much we can accomplish and how good we can sound!
