Royal Marines livestream concert this Saturday

If you are bored on Saturday evening, the Royal Marines will be streaming their annual Mountbatten Festival of Music from the Royal Albert Hall. This year, despite it having to be a reduced band, four former UVHS students will be playing – Rob Norrie, Jodie Giles, Ruth Tarr & Andy Spain.  However, even better than that, Ruth and Andy will be principal soloists on the night, and Ruth is also leader of the String Section (she also happens to be the principal violinist of the Countess of Wessex Symphony Orchestra which is the joint Army/Marines orchestra for royal celebrations).

It is always an amazing spectacle of music with phenomenal drum displays, comedy musical items, some great film music and also fantastic rock/pop arrangements, as well as the traditional elements.

The link is below – please feel free to share it with friends and family  and support our students. Concert starts at 19:30.
