Countess of Wessex’s String Orchestra

We spent this week recording the Countess of Wessex’s String Orchestra at Woolwich Barracks in London.

The Orchestra was formed in 2014 and has doubled in numbers since its establishment. As one of the eight musical groups within the Household Division, the CWSO performs at a wide variety of events, including musical support for State Ceremonial occasions, Investitures, Guards’ Chapel services and National Acts of Commemoration.

An aspect of the recording project is in collaboration with Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in Greenwich, Three of their postgraduate students introduced innovative compositions to the orchestra and these were recorded with the students present.

Additionally, there was music which included works by Rob Wiffin, lately Professor of Conducting at the Royal Military School of Music.

The entire programme will be available shortly for download via the Household Division website,
