Band of the Queen’s Division
The Band of The Queen’s Division is based at RAF Henlow, Bedfordshire.The Band’s primary task is to support the Army both at home and in operational theatres across the globe and in support of State Ceremonial events. It is also used on Peace Support Operations and in supporting wider defence and diplomacy interests, utilising music as both a military effect and a universal ‘language’ in order to draw people together in a neutral manner. The Band is in much demand and has worked across the world including recent tours to Pakistan, the Falkland Islands, Austria, Russia and India.
The Band’s Chain of Command includes a Regular Army Director of Music, Captain Milne, a Bandmaster and a Band Sergeant Major.
The Band and Corps of Drums of the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment
The Band and Corps of Drums of The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment is an Army Reserve Band based in Canterbury. They take on many engagements throughout the year in the form of Parades, Concerts and Royal events in the southern counties and are often asked to undertake engagements in mainland Europe. They are always very well received and are made up of Territorial Army musicians who are employed on a part time basis. Members of the Band and Drums come from a range of civilian employment.
Warrant Officer Class One Bandmaster Ian Michael Collin has recently been appointed Bandmaster of The Band of The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment (Reserves).
Brompton Wives' Choir
The Military Wives Choir network was formed in 2012 following the success of Wherever You Are which reached Number 1. There are now over 80 Military Wives Choirs. The choirs have been formed to support women in the military community to enable them to come together through singing.
Brompton MWC has been established since March 2013. It has seen some of its members perform as part of Gareth Malone's Warhorse Prom Choir to commemorate 100 years since WWI. Brompton were very honoured to sing at the closing ceremony of The Invictus Games, a sports event set up by Prince Harry for injured soldiers. They were also very proud to sing at The Tower of London whilst the poppies were present in the moat.
