Presented by the Corps of Army Music The Countess of Wessex’s String Orchestra
There have been string players in the Army for over 250 years and The Royal Artillery Regiment could boast of having the first professional orchestra in Britain. However this is the first time the Army has a dedicated ensemble where its members can concentrate solely on playing stringed instruments without the need to learn a marching band instrument as was the case in the past.
The CWSO is based at the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich and is named after the Corps of Army Music’s Colonel in Chief.
