Cadence is the rhythmic rise and fall of music. It takes years of practice and whole-hearted dedication to achieve this melodious synchronicity that takes the listener on a ride to heaven. And as we try to describe the mastery of the Eastern Naval Command Band over this art, we run out of superlatives.

For all those lucky ones who attended this concert, this evening will never be forgotten. The Eastern Naval Band consists of fifty musicians who perform music ranging from western classical to light and popular jazz. They have performed in New York, Sidney and Penang, to mention a few venues.

The instruments used to create this soothing music are the Woodwind section (Flute, Saxophone, Oboe, Piccolo, Clarinet and Bassoon), the Brass section (Horn, Cornet, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium and Tuba) and the Percussion section (Glockenspiel, Xylophone, Drums, Cymbals, Tympani, Castanets, Chimes and Vibraphone). And when these instruments are played in unison, under the able guidance of a music director who knows his stuff, the music that is created is magical.

The conductors for the evening were Cdr. P G George and N S Rawat, who gracefully led their band from composition to composition with perfect timing. The musicians were fabulous; we wish we could mention all fifty names, but the solo performances of Shaik John and G C Roy deserve a special mention.

The show began on time, and it started with a composition of Trevor Sharpe titled 'Fanfare & Soliloquy', an excellent piece that uses that woodwinds and brass section to its fullest potential. Next, it was the theme and songs from 'My Fair Lady', and then it was 'Trombone Talk' and 'Golden Sparks'. Then the audience where entertained with 'The Blue Danube', a timeless composition of Johann Strauss, the King of Waltz. Each and every composition was a classic masterpiece to which the Naval Band did total justice. And, when they played 'O Maria', a popular Telugu film number on public demand, it give one an insight into the wide repertoire of music that the Eastern Naval Command Band possesses.

The show ended with the patriotic 'Sare Jahan Se Achha', in tribute to soldiers who laid their lives down for our country. A speech from the Chief Naval Commander and the National Anthem, and the evening was brought to an end. And a bit too soon for everyone, since it was an evening of quality music that was played with a mastery and flair that will forever be etched in our memories. Bravo, Eastern Naval Command Band.

The show was graced by the top brass of the armed forces and the who's who of Hyderabad. The Chief Guest for the evening was the Governor C Rangarajan, and he was presented with a hand carved model of a ship in a glass case.
