Royal New Zealand Air Force Band

2013 Compact Disc release

Royal New Zealand Air Force Band
The Latest recording by the Royal New Zealand Air Force Band features some of our most requested pieces. This CD is perhaps a touch lighter in repertoire and features many different aspects of the RNZAF Band. Recorded in August 2012, this CD unintentionally became the swan song of former Director of Music Owen Clarke. Lieutenant Commander Owen Clarke is now the Director of Music of the stunning Royal New Zealand Navy Band.
