THE Military Wives Choir based at Innsworth, Gloucester and the British Police Symphony Orchestra will join forces under the baton of conductor Richard Jenkinson in Gloucester Cathedral on 15 October for a concert presented by the Friends of Gloucester Three Choirs Festival.

Music to be performed will include some of the songs made famous by the Military Wives Choirs brought together by Gareth Malone for his TV series The Choir, such as ‘Sing’, written by Gary Barlow and Andrew Lloyd Webber for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and the chart-topping ‘Wherever You Are’, written by Paul Mealor and sung by the Military Wives Choir at the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance in the Royal Albert Hall in November 2011.

The orchestra will perform Elgar’s majestic and emotional Symphony No 2 and William Walton’s ‘Spitfire’ Prelude and Fugue, an appropriate choice for a concert in Gloucester, which is a centre for the aviation industry.

The concert takes place at 7 pm and there will be a 30-minute interval for drinks.

Tickets cost £20 or £15 for nave seats or £10 for side aisle seats with no view.

They are available from the Three Choirs Festival Ticket Office 01452 768928 or online (a booking fee of £2.50 per order applies).

Proceeds go to Gloucester Three Choirs Festival, registered charity no 204609
