The Canadian Military Wives Choir Kingston is set to perform in Toronto this September at the Invictus Games.
They will be joined by members of the other Canadian Military Wives Choirs, a not-for-profit charity whose aim is to provide a support network for women in the military community through singing.
The Invictus Games is a sports competition for injured service veteran athletes that was founded by Prince Harry (Prince Henry of Wales KCVO).
The Canadian Military Wives Choir was set up in Ottawa back in 2013 and followed by choirs formed in Comox, Edmonton, Petawawa, Greenwood, North Bay, Trenton and Washington with the Kingston choir recently becoming its ninth member.

The groups aim is to bring the community together through song and to promote the choir through local performances, supporting events on base, and collaborating with other choirs. The only requisite for members of the choir is a direct link to the military. There is no requirement for any musical ability – the emphasis is on friendship and fun.
