Regiment Band visits local schools

The Royal Gibraltar Regiment Band has been visiting local schools over the last couple of weeks, playing to the children and talking about opportunities for playing a musical instrument.

The Band Master, Warrant Officer Paul Collis-Smith, has visited more than 10 first, middle and secondary schools with representatives from the RGR Band and has performed in front of large groups of children. He says:

“The aim is to enable children to experience music close up and have the chance to ask questions about the musical instruments. It is important to encourage young musicians and to enthuse children to try playing a musical instrument. I hope to visit other schools after the Easter break.”

There will be an RGR Band Open Day starting at 1:00 pm on Sunday 10 Apr 05 at the Catholic Community Centre. Any child or adult who plays a musical instrument will be able to join the RGR Band in an afternoon of music where they will prepare for a performance in the evening. The tuition, workshop and performance are all free of charge. Musicians of any ability are invited to come along and family and friends are encouraged to come and support the evening performance.

Please contact the RGR Band Master, WO Paul Collis-Smith on 54014505 if you are interested in taking part.
