A MUSICAL VOYAGE - Royal Australian Navy

A MUSICAL VOYAGE - Royal Australian Navy

- 230 – I have written

- 230 – I have written separately to Gordon and feel sure you are as confident of him as I am of Paul, that we have left our organisations in the hands of good men who care passionately about their people and the future of their organisations. Now go we in concert to liberty and not to banishment. W. Shakespeare. Serving in Harmony. P. C. ANDERSON Commander, RAN Director of Music - Navy FROM THE PR DESK Article by Leading Seaman Cathy Wainwright Well here we are at the end of the Navy’s Centenary year and co-incidentally a year of unprecedented overseas and interstate travel for many members of the band. In between the trips and centenary events it has been a challenge to try and keep up with the constant requests for our recordings, and the more routine aspects of the Public Relations (PR) job; such as keeping the website up to date, sending out mail to the roughly four hundred people now on our mailing list, and recording audience numbers and media hits for every gig undertaken by the band around the country. Having the opportunity to be involved in the preparation for the three overseas deployments this year has opened my eyes to just how much work goes on behind the scenes to make these deployments run smoothly and successfully for all concerned. From the initial negotiations which must be undertaken with overseas organising committees and our own navy management, through obtaining visas, organising freight, uniforms, music, rehearsals, public relations materials, travel arrangements and then of course the rehearsals and performances once in country; many people contribute in numerous ways sometimes unseen and taken for granted. Even after we return there is follow up work to be done, media releases and letters of thanks to be written, and liaison with contacts made overseas to be followed up. Feedback comes from some unexpected sources such as the following from Adjutant Jean- Marc Lanois of the French Republican Guard Cavalry Fanfare Band. “I saw last week Lieutenant Arandel, Assistant Conductor of the Versailles Transmission Band of France that you met in China, and he spoke to me for a long time about the excellent impressions that he had of your band.” In this regard it is very satisfying to be able to congratulate Chief Petty Officer Andrew Stapleton on being presented the Kirsty Jones Award. As a key member of the overseas deployments, Chief Stapleton has that knack of being able to put us through our paces and get us wanting to have the best marching display in the tattoo even when we feel we just cannot do it one more time! And he does that with unceasing good humour and patience which always brings out the best in people. The commissioned artwork ‘The Salute’ acknowledging the contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to the Royal Australian Navy has also travelled overseas with us in various forms. Initially conceived of just a sleeve to be worn on the drummer’s slings, it has now also been reproduced as full size and A4 sized mementos, and reproduced onto drum sticks. ‘The Salute’ has travelled to Brunei and China as well as to every band detachment in Australia, telling the story of how our Navy has been supported and strengthened by the contribution of the indigenous people over the last one hundred years. It is rewarding to see images of ‘The Salute’ starting to appear in photos coming in from all the detachments. In the New Year all detachments will be displaying a full size reproduction of the artwork with the accompanying story, and the Melbourne detachment has been chosen to permanently display the original. Royal Australian Navy Band: A Musical Voyage

- 231 – At the time of writing I have just returned from a visit to Hobart as part of a group supporting the Tasmanian detachment’s contribution to the 200 th anniversary celebrations for Anglesea Barracks and the Mt Nelson Signal Station. As part of the Navy Headquarters Tasmania display on Open Day ‘The Salute’’ and the Tasmanian silver drum (given by the Government of Tasmania to the Royal Australian Navy on the occasion of its 50 th anniversary) aroused much interest amongst visitors to Anglesea Barracks. Members of the Royal Australian Navy Band take on many roles and the 4 th China Nanchang International Tattoo saw the debut of a five person Semaphore team reinvigorating this naval tradition of communication in the visual medium. After signalling ‘Nanchang Hero City’ to the people of Nanchang, the team then learned ‘Lest We Forget’ for Remembrance Day, and most recently ‘Mt Nelson Two Hundred’ and ‘Anglesea Two Hundred’ for the Tasmanian events. It was a challenge for all of us, but also fun doing something completely different. Speaking of something completely different the Director of Music nominated the band for the first time ever for the Navy League Perpetual Trophy awarded for assistance by an RAN ship or unit to the civilian community either in Australia or overseas. This required the preparation of a substantial supporting document outlining the wide range of activities the six detachments have undertaken over the last financial year offering direct assistance to charities, and indirect support to community groups and veterans associations. An analysis of our PR stats revealed that in the last financial year our direct and indirect audiences around Australia numbered roughly 9.5 million or 43 per cent of the Australian population. Broken down by category our engagements were 36.2% defence related, 32.9% community focused, 14.7% supporting veterans groups, 8.0 % for schools, 5.7% for government and vice-regal functions and 2.5% supporting charity events. There is no doubt that the Navy Band ticks the box for the signature behaviour ‘strengthening ties across and beyond Navy’. In this regard I must make mention of the many people in the Sydney and Melbourne detachment PR teams who have worked consistently throughout the year doing the ongoing jobs of preparing programs, advertising detachment commitments and sending in the audience figures. I always enjoy the discussions we have about ways that we can expand and improve our audience reach. This hands-on support at the detachment level allows my job to take a more strategic and hopefully developmental focus. Finally I must make mention of the outstanding year that it has been for the Work Experience program. Ten students from both country and metropolitan high schools have had the opportunity to spend a week with the Sydney detachment observing the job of a naval musician and in some cases playing with the detachment for performances or recordings. This is a significant contribution of time and resources towards the development of future musicians and something of which we should be proud. Finally, on behalf of us all, I would like to acknowledge the enormous amount of work done by Commander Anderson in public relations for the RAN Band over the last 9½ years, and wish him all the best for his new endeavours. And one final message … Royal Australian Navy Band: A Musical Voyage
