The Australian Defence Force Tri-Service Band - Top Brass

From Australia

Pomp, presence and power

Rudyard Kipling said there's nothing in the world like a military band to raise the spirits, and he was right! Festival Melbourne2006 will be flexing some major military muscle with this sparkling concert by the massed Australian Defence Force Tri-Service Band. Over 100 musicians in full dress uniform will take the stage of the Sidney Myer Music Bowl to belt out a rousing cavalcade of popular favourites, culminating in a splendid rendition of Tchaikovsky's magnificent 1812 Overture - complete with real cannons, of course! When the Australian Army, Airforce and Navy Bands join ranks to perform together as one, it's a rare triple treat - anyone who misses this will definitely be brassed off!
