The Joan will host a very exciting Morning Melodies concert this month with the NSW Police Band playing ‘Music from the Stage & Screen’.
Belinda Adams, the multi award-winning vocalist, is set to join the NSW Police Band on a musical journey through the songs of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Bernstein and Broadway with a wide repertoire of favourites coming to life.
The NSW Police Band is Australia’s oldest and longest continuously running concert band.
First formed all the way back in 1985, they just commemorated 125 years of dedicated service. Known as ‘The State Band of NSW’, it is one of only two full-time police bands in Australia.
Featuring a talented and versatile group of 33 musicians, conducted by John Saunders, audience members will be presented with a delightful program of all-time greats.
‘Mack the Knife’, ‘Waltzing Matilda’, ‘All of Me’, ‘In the Mood’, ‘Memories’, and ‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’ are just a few, with many more to be heard on the day. You will be tapping your toes, dancing in your seat and humming the whole way home from this show.
The NSW Police Band will play at The Joan on Wednesday, May 26. Tickets begin at $22. Visit www.thejoan.com.au/events/nsw-police-band-2021.
