Dear Friend of the Band,

Greetings! We trust you have been enjoying the many performances from RAN Band Melbourne through the winter months. Certainly there have been some exciting shows and the schedule is set to continue as the weather warms up.

Below is a selection of concerts, performances and ceremonies the band will be involved with through Spring and into Summer. For those eager to hear the Big Band in full-flight be sure to catch them at Albury-Wodonga Jazz Festival; The Marysville Jazz Weekend or even the Big Band Soundwaves concert. The Big Band’s jazz program will feature a variety of swing classics from the likes Of Count Basie, Duke Ellington and more.

If you're keen on a little singing or crowd participation then don't miss the 'Last Night Of The Proms' at Portarlington or at the Cerberus Soundwaves concert this October. These variety shows will be an exciting mix of pomp, ceremony and celebration.
