The Choir – Soldiers’ Wives – Choirmaster Gareth Malone returns with the fourth series of the BAFTA and RTS award-winning series The Choir – and this series is set to be his most ambitious and emotional challenge to date. The Choir – Soldiers’ Wives sees Gareth working with the partners and children of those in the armed services from the Chivenor barracks in Devon. During his time with the battalion families, Gareth embeds himself into life on the base – home to a mix of Royal Marines, Army and Royal Air Force personnel.
Many military partners have spoken of feeling overlooked and they desperately want a voice to express themselves. With the service personnel having been deployed to Afghanistan, this is an opportunity for those left behind in the UK to come together – without the boundaries of age, rank or background. Can Gareth unite the base through the power of song?
