Welcome to the Fifes and Drums of York Town

We are an enthusiastic group of students, parents, instructors and supporters. Our group brings history alive for old York Town, and teaches music, history and leadership to our youth. Our members perform at prestigious venues such as the Jefferson Memorial, the United States Capitol, Gettysburg Battefield, the Virginia Governor's Mansion, the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower.

Join Us!

We want you if you are between the ages of 10 and 18. We are all volunteer students and parents, and welcome newcomers. No experience is necessary. Find more information using the "Join" button in the menu above, or contact recruits@fifes-and-drums.org

Most Corps performances are free and open to the public. We have nearly 100 performances at locations across the eastern seaboard. Both Junior and Senior members can be seen and heard weekly during the Spring, Summer and Fall in historic York Town. See this year's schedule below.
