Fife and Drum Corps Performance



February 7 2014 – The US Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps performing at the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center.
The Corps entered through the Last 100 Yards Exhibit for a special morning performance of patriotic music.

The Fife and Drum Corps, wearing Colonial redcoats and tricorn hats, perform on handmade, rope-tensioned drums, single-valve bugles and 10-hole wooden fifes, creating a sound that is unmatched in both quality and style. The instruments are styled after those used in the American Revolution, when fifes, drums and bugles were at the heart of battle as the primary means of communication.
