Special matinee performance – Australian Army Band Newcastle
5 February – The Australian Army Band Newcastle is back with a special matinee at Cessnock Performing Arts Centre.
With only a short break from service after World War II and under various names and configurations, the ensemble has existed as Newcastle and the Hunter region’s very own military band since 1861. Its members are heavily invested in the support and promotion of the Australian Defence Force whilst striving to develop music and musicians within the Hunter region.
With ensembles from quartets to a full military band they perform music from all genres and even feature a Pipes and Drums section making it a very versatile package. Proceeds from this event will go to Swiss 8 in support of mental health.
