This event has probably been and gone!
Following the successful Remember concerts presented over the last two years, the Royal New Zealand Band presents their third Remembrance Day concert paying tribute to New Zealand’s past and present while looking forward to a peaceful and positive future. Described as “the most beautiful concert I’ve ever been to” last year’s concert exceed the expectations of our audience, many wishing they’d brought their friends along with them.
2016 marks the hundredth anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, a conflict that took a huge toll on New Zealand’s soldiers, which, alongside the Navy’s 75th Anniversary, will be the focus of the concert’s programme. The Band will present a varied, entertaining and moving tribute to those who serve for their country on land, at sea and in the air.
The Royal New Zealand Navy Band is one of the principal military bands in New Zealand, made up of 30 of the country’s best wind, brass and percussion players. This concert, conducted by the Band’s new Director of Music, Lieutenant Michael Dowrick, promises to be an entertaining, family friendly and special evening. We look forward to seeing you there – remember to bring your friends!
