Farewell to Kneller Hall

Final Farewell to Kneller Hall British Army Royal Corps of Army Music
We spent four days last week with musicians from the Royal Corps of Army Music at Kneller Hall in London.
 
The Grade II listed building has been the home of Army music since 1857, originally formed by Field Marshall HRH The Duke of Cambridge, then Commander in Chief of the British Army. The School is famous with military musicians throughout the world and incidentally, there is also a fine public house outside the school gates bearing the Commander’s name! 
 
In January 2016 the government announced its decision to sell the site as part of the MoD’s drive for greater efficiency and alternative plans have since been made for the administration and musical training.
 
We were providing the sound recording facilities for the British Army’s forthcoming video presentation ‘Farewell to Kneller Hall’. This project features not only the musicians but also the impressive grounds of the building.
 
The musical content recorded includes the British Army Jazz Orchestra, a marching display with The Band of the Household Cavalry and a fifty-two piece Combined Wind Ensemble.
 
We very much look forward to the final product which will be featured on the Royal Corps of Army Music’s Youtube channel.
