Regiment Band Seeks Student Involvement

April 4, 2018 | 2 Comments

The Royal Bermuda Regiment is inviting young musicians to join the ranks of the Regiment Band and Corps of Drums for the summer.

According to Major Dwight Robinson, Director of Music for the Royal Bermuda Regiment Band and Corps of Drums, the Royal Bermuda Regiment Summer Employment initiative is an opportunity for students aged 15 to 22 to play alongside the talented members of the Regiment Band as they entertain audiences across the Island.

Major Robinson notes that students will be engaged in the same musical training and performance as the regular part-time members of the band. They will also be provided uniforms and be paid for their time.

The students will not be required for any other operational considerations taken on by the Regiment. Rehearsals are twice weekly with performances once every two weeks.

“Upon conclusion of the summer programme, students can discontinue their service without any further obligation to the battalion,” a spokesperson said.

“The initiative provides a chance for students to continue to play on their instruments during the summer break and minimize the performance gaps which typically come with the break from their regular schooling.

“The Royal Bermuda Regiment Summer Employment initiative concludes August 31, 2018. For further inquiries, interested musicians can contact the Band Office on [441] 238-2470 or by email at bermudaregimentband@gov.bm.”

    Anything to justify its meagre existence

    The Regiment band seems to get smaller & smaller. This could be a way to get new life into it.

    I have been to a few Scottish Festivals in the US & Canada where there are pipe band competitions. Great to see the younger members of the bands, male & female, keeping traditions alive in an age of heads buried in cellphones.
