Military Band Extravaganza

Distinctive in the scarlet uniform and bearskin headdress, the Band of the Ceremonial Guard of the Canadian Armed Forces attracts crowds wherever it performs. Do not miss this opportunity to hear the band perform an exciting concert program in collaboration with the Latvian National Guard Orchestra. Founded in 2011, the National Guard Orchestra is based in Riga, Latvia and has performed throughout Europe supporting both military and civilian events. This is sure to be a spectacular concert and we hope to see you on July 14th at the Aberdeen Pavilion.
