This, the band’s Corporal Simone Dew tells “CityNews,” will be  a great opportunity to hear one of the country’s  finest bands on the concert hall stage performing works highlighting the colour and versatility of the modern symphonic wind band.

With numbers like  “The Red Machine” by Peter Graham and  Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue”, the concert will also feature a guest appearance by soprano Sara Carvalho.

The Band is a 63 piece professional symphonic wind ensemble that supports the Australian Defence Force, State and Federal Government, Regal and Vice Regal functions, and the community of the ACT and region.

Recent overseas engagements have seen members of the Band performing in Switzerland, Turkey, Tonga, Malaysia and Japan and the Band continues to be a foremost and respected participant in the arts community of Canberra with performances at the Canberra International Music Festival, the Canberra Symphony Orchestra series, and the regular Music at Midday concerts, now in their 23rd year at the Canberra Theatre.

RMC Band, at Llewellyn Hall ANU at 1pm on Thursday,  May 26.  admission is free.
