Musicians were an important part of the 18th century military. Tryon Palace has recreated a colonial Fife and Drum Corps, which plays at numerous events throughout the year in New Bern and beyond. In this camp, participants will learn from experienced instructors the basics of reading music, scales and rudiments, marching, history, and tunes from experienced instructors that will prepare them to join the Tryon Palace Fife and Drum Cops. This program, for ages 10-17, will help bring history to life in a truly unique way. Tryon Palace Fife and Drum Summer Camp is limited to 20 campers.
