Royal Marines support Kapitol Cory Online Championships

Plans for the upcoming Kapitol Cory Online Championships have been given a further boost by the confirmation of major support from Her Majesty’s Royal Marines. As one of the world’s leading and most versatile military bands, the Royal Marines Band Service has a rich association with brass bands and remains committed to supporting the genre. 

Public Engagement Officer, WO1 Nev Dednum RM said: “We are delighted to be strengthening our great relationship with the world-famous Cory Band, and partnering with them as a major sponsor of the 2021 Cory Online Brass Band Championships. This is a brilliant and innovative project and we wish all the competing bands the very best of luck. We look forward to seeing the results of their endeavours in March.”

Commenting on the high profile partnership, Cory Band’s Musical Director Philip Harper said: “We are so pleased to be able to continue to attract the highest quality support for our online competition, and it doesn’t come much higher than the Royal Marines. We are very much looking forward to working together. It gives a further incentive to all the bands who are currently hard at work making their video entries, and I’m sure everyone will benefit from this link-up with such a professional and highly-regarded organisation.”
