Celebrate the traditions of 18th-century military music and explore the important roles played by fifers and drummers. Units from the United States and Canada join Colonial Williamsburg’s Fifes and Drums to perform grand displays of period music. You’ll want to respond to the Drummers Call—a call beaten by the duty fifer and drummer to mass the regimental musicians for the playing of ceremonies such as Reveille, Retreat, and Tattoo.
