Anzac Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It’s the day on which we remember all Australians and New Zealanders who have served and have given their lives in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.
The right approach needs to be taken to ensure appropriate music and visuals are playing on this important day. We have a range of content suitable for your Anzac Day programming and our support website outlines how you can set these up around any services you have planned.
We have available several versions of Laurence Binyon’s The Ode.
The full version of The Ode is a self-contained commemoration service, beginning with The Last Post and concluding with one minute of silence. We also have a version without the minute of silence, as well as a number of other options.

Appropriate Music To Play On The Day
To maintain a focus of remembrance before or after your official programming, we’ve composed a special ANZAC_DAY list. It contains a small, hand-picked selection of appropriate tracks from artists such as Eric Bogle, John Williamson and Redgum, perfect to follow on from The Last Post and The Ode.

Managing Your Screens
It’s important to ensure you have a screen management plan in place. You might like to program one slide to stay up for the duration of the day or intersperse an Anzac Day slide with special messages informing patrons of your planned services.
