On the battlefield the shriek of fifes and the thunder of drums could be heard up to a mile away. Experience the majesty of 18th-century military music up close as Colonial Williamsburg’s Fifes and Drums lead visiting corps from around the country in a Grand March from the Capitol down Duke of Gloucester Street to Market Square. The musicians will congregate behind the Courthouse for a Grand Review, with each group performing. This event is part of Colonial Williamsburg's Drummers Call weekend.
