The Royal New Zealand Navy Band celebrate the Treaty of Waitangi with a traditional beating of the retreat and naval ceremonial sunset. This features a precise marching display succeeded by a poignant musical tribute to the fallen heroes of New Zealand.

The band return the following day to perform a varied concert programme, suitable for all ages accompanied by a spectacular gun salute.

The Navy Band is regarded as one of the country’s finest military bands and contains many of the best wind and brass musicians in the New Zealand. Their new Director of Music Lieutenant Commander Owen Clarke, recently transferred from a successful career as the Air Force Band conductor, is behind the push for the band to present more public concerts. “The Navy Band is a fantastic ensemble and performing to the public is what we are about. The band thrives on it. This concert will be entertaining, fun and with music to suit all tastes.”
