ActivitiesEdit

Today the navy band is one of the main musical symbols of the city of Vladivostok as demonstrated by its participation in the Pacific Meridian International Film Festival, the Eastern Economic Forum. The bandsmen regularly perform at military parades, graduations, and send-off and homecoming ceremonies for naval vessels. They perform at ceremonies to welcome foreign warships and delegations, statesmen and officials from foreign countries.

The band takes part in goodwill visits of Russian warships to foreign nations in the Pacific. The band has most notably worked with the navies of the United States, China, South Korea, Vietnam, India, and Japan. Their repertoire includes overtures, rhapsodies, martial music, and songs featuring prominently original jazz, symphonic, and popular music.[2][3][4][5]
