Consisting of 55 brass, woodwind, keyboard and percussion players, the bands repertoire is varied, from John Philip Sousa’s rousing band music to chamber and ensemble works.

2018 marks the Band’s centennial year. No strangers to international travel, this will be their first trip to Australia and 6th continent. On this tour they will perform compositions by Tchaikovsky, Hindemith, Maslanka, Mackey, Wilson, and Bernstein, as well as a reconstruction of Bellpiece, the last composed unfinished piece by famous Australian composer Percy Grainger. This reconstruction has never before been performed in concert in Australia.
