Selected musicians from all 11 sub-units of the Australian Army Band (AAB) embarked on a concert tour of a lifetime, participating in the 2014 Swiss Basel International Tattoo from July 14-26.
The band of 70 regular and reserve musicians left Australia on July 12.
They will perform more than 20 times, playing public concerts and feature as one of the major acts of the tattoo’s 15 performances.
They will be one of 11 bands and performing groups that will entertain more than 120,000 spectators during concerts in Basel and Fribourg.
The band comprises experienced and new musicians to the AAB, who were selected based on their talent and availability to travel to Switzerland.
