ANZAC Day

25 April 2019

3pm-4pm

Free event

Join us for a concert with Cambridge Brass Quintet to commemorate ANZAC Day. 

The Cambridge Brass Quintet with assistance from the Cambridge Auxiliary Band will present “Dawn” by leading New Zealand composer Chris Artley.

In 2014 the Australian and New Zealand governments offered a prize to Australian and New Zealand composers for the best settings of authentic Gallipoli texts by WW1 veterans as part of the centenary celebrations of the Gallipoli landings.

Chris Artley's 'Dawn' is a musical setting of words by Australian WWI soldier Ellis Silas.

On ANZAC Day we will also be running free guided tours of For Us They Fell at 11.00am, 12.00pm, 1.00pm and 2.00pm. Find out more here.
