In the framework of a military music training cooperation the Ministry of Defense of BiH invited the Military Band of the Austrian Province of Carinthia.
The two bands have practiced intensely for a week in order to form a harmonic joint orchestra. As a first highlight of their tour the binational military formation performed famous Austrian compositions during the celebration of the Austrian National Day at EUFOR Camp Butmir in Sarajevo on Friday 21 October.
