Dear Friend of the Band,

Greetings! We trust you are having a fabulous start to the year. Hopefully you have been able to catch some of our performances around Melbourne, especially through the April/Anzac Day period. This year, RAN Band Melbourne led the Navy on the Anzac city parade from the Town Hall to the Shrine of Remembrance before going back for a second lap to lead the Air Force as well. After our brief photo opportunity at the Shrine with the entire ship’s company of HMAS Cerberus, the band stayed to participate in the midday memorial service. Sporting fans may have also caught Vocalist LSMUSN Stephanie McCorkelle and bugler ABMUSN Ben Smith, who were featured on the televised Anzac day AFL Match between Collingwood and Essendon. We also had a number of members from RAN Band Melbourne travel over to Turkey to participate in the Gallipoli ceremonies.
 

As we move into winter, the band will continue with the monthly Soundwaves concerts, however there will be no performance in July. If you can’t make the Soundwaves shows then we will also be performing in various locations around Victoria. Details for most of our public performances from now until Spring are listed below. We hope to see you there.
