Music has long inspired soldiers and theatres of war have been fertile grounds for the arts as an expression of that which was experienced: through songs, verse, prose and art. Here’s to the Heroes will present tunes of glory, songs of lament and the music and pageantry that encouraged the failing spirits of mere mortals in the face of battle and brought comfort at the loss of lifelong mates. Today we remember them and pay tribute to the fallen soldiers. With the familiar uniforms of red and black, instruments glinting in the sun, or under the spotlights, this scene is one that alerts the people of the city that the City Of Launceston RSL Band is giving another performance. Finally, St Andrews Caledonian Pipe Band, formerly the band of the 12th Battalion, whose performance honours also include various Tattoos and performances at Scotland’s Edinburgh and Stirling Castles, will complete a stirring line up which includes massed bands performances.
