Colonial Williamsburg's Fifes and Drums comprise a semi-military corps that continues the 18th-century practice of recruiting youth. Each member must pass tune and marching requirements to advance through the ranks. These world-renowned musicians have performed throughout the country at such prestigious events as the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Lexington and Concord 225th Celebration in Boston, and several events celebrating America's 400th Anniversary of the first permanent English settlement in the Americas, including the visit of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
