Royal Marine Band Concert

On Tuesday 27th March, a group of students from the College’s Music Department took  the opportunity to attend the Royal Marine Band’s concert, which was held at Lympstone Commando Training Centre. We were accompanied by Mr Stock, Mrs Stock and Mr Davis.

It was an incredible evening with a variety of styles of music. The music ranged from classical to jazz, pop and alternative rock. There were also different varieties of instruments. These included cornets, clarinets, flutes, trombones and French horns. There was also the Royal Marine Corps of drums that accompanied the band. These were incredible with their synchronicity and precision.

Our personal favourites were Knights of Cydonia by the whole band and The Lark Ascending a violin solo by Cpl Alice Hudson. These were our favourite performances because they showed excellent practising and how much you can achieve with dedication to your instrument. It was an honour to be given the opportunity to watch this impeccable and inspiring performance.
