MUSIC fans should pop December 5 in their diaries, because a big brass band is coming to town!
To mark the opening of our new exhibition The Kangaroo March: Our Local Boys Walk to War, join the Museum of the Riverina, army historian Jillian Durance and The Kapooka Army band as they present Soul of the Batallion, a showcase of music from the era of World War I.
The band will perform the songs that troops marched to, and that valorised them back home.
You will hear popular songs of the time, and being the 100th anniversary of the week the Kangaroos departed Wagga, the band will reprise the Recessional hymn which was played as our boys left Wagga to walk to war.
Details: Saturday, December 5, from 11am to 12.30pm in the Council meeting room, corner Baylis and Morrow streets.
