‘LAST NIGHT OF THE PROMS’
7.30pm Saturday 14 September
Welcome and thank you for visiting the Royal Marines Association Concert Band website. Discover more about the former Royal Marines musicians who joined together to form this band in April 2006 by clicking the History of the Band tab above.
Since our very first public performance at the Royal Marines Commando Training Centre in Lympstone Devon in September of 2006, we have been actively engaged in performing at least two concerts a month. In this time we have gained a considerable following wherever we play, and have since become one of the most sought after military bands in the country!
Lt Col Chris Davis OBE BA MMus DMA LRAM RM is the Band’s fourth Music Director.
Chris had a long and distinguished career in the Royal Marines Band Service between 1975 and 2009 eventually reaching the top appointment in 2002, Principal Director of Music. During his last two years of service he was also the senior Director of Music of the Armed Forces.
We were particularly pleased to welcome Chris to our Band not least because in 2005 he was a member of the Corps’ committee which authorised the establishment of the RMA Band chiefly for the benefit of former Royal Marines musicians. He brings to the appointment considerable experience as a talented musician and administrator. Chris’ career summary can be found under ‘About The Band‘ on this website.
