|military music GRAND CONCERT - last edition|
On August 21, 2013, The Quebec City International Festival of Military Bands has presented the Grand concert du Palais, where the excellence of military musicians from Germany and Chile, accompanied by three soloists from the famous Russian Red Army Choir, have dazzled the audience.
Respecting the tradition of the popular Grands Concerts, the German and Chilean bands have transported the festival goers into their cultural worlds by offering a repertoire typical of their countries. With the addition of the enchanting mixture of the three Russian Red Army Choir soloists, the evening took place not only on Russian airs, but also on Spanish and Neapolitan ones.
The Army Band of Neubrandenbourg from Germany opened the concert, followed by the Symphonic Band of the Chilean Air Force. The Russian soloists joined each for a few numbers. The grand finale brought the two bands together and closed with the Russians joining them for the national anthems of the respective countries.
