IMC Festival of the Arts Performance – Royal Canadian Air Force Band
June 21 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Royal Canadian Air Force Band
The Royal Canadian Air Force Band is a group of thirty-five full time professional musicians who routinely perform throughout Canada. Comprised of a number of diverse groups and ensembles, the Band’s role is to provide musical support to the Canadian Forces, all levels of government, and to a variety of public functions. The Royal Canadian Air Force Band also proudly represents Canada and the Canadian Forces around the globe. Military and public parades, ceremonial occasions, international tattoos, public and school concerts, official dinners, dances and receptions are all typical engagements for the Royal Canadian Air Force Band and its varied ensembles.
In 2009 the Band embarked on an extensive and exciting musical restructuring that greatly enhanced its repertoire and relevance to better appeal to audiences of all ages. The versatility of the new Royal Canadian Air Force Band is readily evident through the number and variety of its groups and ensembles: Jet Stream (show band), Command Brass (brass quintet), Dixieland Band, Jazz Combos, JetLiners (Jazz Big band), and of course, Parade Band.
For over sixty years, this professional Air Force Band has been highly visible throughout the Canadian Forces. Instilling national pride in Canadian audiences across the country, it is also a key contributor to “esprit de corps” in our military. The Royal Canadian Air Force Band proudly represents Canada at international events around the globe, bringing with it the highest degree of diplomacy and statesmanship.
The Royal Canadian Air Force Band is based out of 17 Wing, Winnipeg and is presently under the command of Captain Matthew Clark, CD.
