The military band of the motorized rifle unit of the Southern Military District (YuVO), stationed in Volgograd, celebrated its 75th anniversary. The orchestra is rightfully considered one of the leading creative musical groups of the Southern Military District.

The military band was created in the first post-war year – December 23, 1946 in Stalingrad. The team was formed from former front-line soldiers and gifted boys, whom the military found in orphanages, took them to their unit and made them their pupils.

The orchestra’s repertoire includes works of classical music, Russian and foreign composers of our time, pop and folk music, accompaniments for vocal soloists. The orchestra has created a big band performing jazz compositions.

The military band of the unit is a permanent participant in international military music festivals in Russia, a laureate of Russian and international brass music festivals.

In 2021, the military band took part in over 600 different events, including honorary escorts, wreath-laying, and welcoming guests of honor.
