The 2013 Spectacular will feature rousing marches, Celtic selections, Songs That Won The War, contemporary songs and stirring favourites. All of these performed by more than 120 pipers, drummers, brass and woodwind players from 10 of Toronto’s Navy, Army and Air Force unit bands.

This tribute program will include musical selections in celebration of space as the Royal Canadian Military Institute prepares for its new space and new home. Performers will shuttle us through musical treasures that have inspired nations from 1890, when the clubs opened, to today. Fanfares, pageantry, the skirl of the pipes, and colourful uniforms make this a showcase not to be missed!

For twenty-four consecutive years, lovers of big band, military band music and pageantry have known that this annual concert is a must-see. We look forward to entertaining you in grand style!

With a very special appearance by Col. Chris Hadfield.
