The Band is very versatile and has the ability to form various different ensembles from the excellent musicians that make up the main Concert band. From the highly popular and locally renowned Big Band, to brass and woodwind quartets and other small ensembles. So whatever your occasion, the Band can meet your expectations and more!
THE CONCERT BAND
The Concert Band is approx 25-30 musicians strong and is configured in a typical concert/wind band set up that includes brass, woodwind and percussion instruments. On occasions the Band invites specialist musicians such as vocalists, keyboard players and others to join in to add that extra bit of sparkle when they are playing something extra special!
The Corps of Drums provides a traditional Naval ceremonial ensemble to the Band. Emulating the style and traditions of the world famous Royal Marines Corps of Drums, they are a popular feature for concerts. They regularly perform as a stand alone unit carrying out a variety of drum displays and mess beatings in Britannia Royal Naval College and beyond at special request.
The band is very fortunate to have some very accomplished musicians amongst its instrumentalists. These include instrumental soloists, vocalists and those who play more than one instrument. This enables it to field a range of smaller ensembles from brass and woodwind quintets to string quartets, chamber groups and even duets.
