ROyal Marines Band

On Thursday, 28 March, the Antrim Grammar School played host to the Band of The Royal Marines.

This was a prestigious event as this world-renowned ensemble had offered itself to only 4 schools throughout the Province, and the event lived up to its promise.

A select group of pupils was invited to participate in an extended masterclass session where they were able to avail of the expert tuition of the brass and wind members; this was a rare opportunity and one to which the pupils responded with great enthusiasm, benefitting hugely from the tutors’ input.

In the afternoon, the school was treated to a concert of popular dance music by the full session band which had a strong interactive flavour. Local dignitaries, including the Mayor of Antrim were encouraged to join in the exciting jamboree which closed the day on a high note.
