The Royal Marines Association Concert Band and Portsmouth Military Wives Choir

The Royal Marines Association Concert Band and Portsmouth Military Wives Choir join together to present a programme of popular songs, music from the shows, marches, big band sounds, and English classics on Sunday July 20.

The Royal Marines Association Concert Band is comprised of over 50 musicians who collectively have over 1,800 years’ Service. The Portsmouth Military Wives Choir has over 80 members and is the largest MWC in the UK. Both groups regularly perform together to sell-out audiences throughout the UK and will be bringing their unique and exciting show to the Stag. 

Clarinettist David Moore who will be bringing the Royal Marines Concert Band to the Stag lived in Brittains Lane and was educated at Sevenoaks Secondary School where he received Violin lessons from Bill Stroud, was a chorister in St Mary’s Kippington choir and a member of the 3rd Riverhead Scouts. He joined the Royal Marines Band Service in June 1954 as a 14 year old Boy Musician, playing the Clarinet, Saxophone and Violin.  On completion of training David was drafted to sea in the Far East, serving in three cruisers and two Aircraft Carriers. He then was in bands at Chatham, Britannia Royal Naval College Dartmouth, Malta and Commando Forces in Plymouth. After completion of the Bandmasters course he was the Bandmaster at the Naval Air Station, Culdrose.

He is looking forward to playing in the former Odeon cinema where he used to go to Saturday morning pictures all those years ago.
