Royal Marines School of Music Training Band and the band of the RHS
Following on from two extremely successful collaborations between the Bands of the Royal Hospital School and Her Majesty’s Royal Marines School of Music, we are delighted to announce a return visit to RHS by one of the finest military bands in the world. The day will consist of a workshop for the pupils followed by a joint concert in the evening, with repertoire covering a wide spectrum of musical genres. Music from the movies, the West End, popular classics and the operatic world will all feature before a rousing and traditional Naval finale. One of the highlights of the night will be a dazzling display of precision drill by the worldfamous Corps of Drums of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines, ably assisted by our own fantastic drummers. This concert will also feature the world premiere performance of Sleep, Beneath the Wave, a musical and poetic tribute to the 101 RHS alumni who died at the Battle of Jutland in 1916.
