Daytime Music Theatre: Military Band Sounds
The RAN Band Melbourne Wind Band is one of the premier ensembles of the unit, based at HMAS Cerberus, Victoria. The band performs regularly for audiences at a variety of venues throughout Melbourne and Victoria, under the direction of Lieutenant David Coit, RAN. The ensemble is suited to larger venues such as concert halls and theatres and features some of the finest musicians in the Australian Defence Force.
The ensemble showcases both traditional and contemporary wind band repertoire from a range of genres, including marches, traditional military band works, orchestral arrangements, and contemporary works. Songs from musicals and popular tunes featuring vocalists regularly often featured to supplement the traditional instrumental format.
The Wind Band regularly performs Soundwaves concerts, which are held at the Band Studio, HMAS Cerberus. These monthly flagship concerts are free to the general public and attract a regular audience of young and old. Concerts often feature premiere performances of new compositions and arrangements by the RAN Band’s own musicians, these programmed in conjunction with significant works for wind and military band by acclaimed Australian and international composers.
Throughout its history, the ensemble has performed for thousands of audiences within Australia and around the world. Today, the wind band continues to uphold Navy’s proud traditions and provide support to the Royal Australian Navy.
